About Walking Down Ranch
Veterans Village
Lakeside

Walking Down Ranch, Veterans Village is a unique community that offers veterans and their families an array of services including transitional housing, food, clothes, utilities, medical transportation, phones, medications, and holiday boxes. Since being recognized as a 501(c)(3) in 2014 we have assisted more than 650 veterans in Arizona’s White Mountains.

The village is located in beautiful Lakeside, Arizona. There are 18 cabins in the midst of renovation to make them suitable as transitional housing. In addition, the Veterans Village Thrift Store at the front of the property provides on-going revenue for the revitalization and maintenance of the cabins, as well as funding for other veteran-focused projects.

What is a veteran? A veteran, whether active duty, discharged, retired, or reserve, is someone who at one point in his or her life, wrote a blank check made payable to the United States of America, for an amount of “up to, and including, his or her life”. That is HONOR.
