Serving Those Who Serve Us

Our Mission: Healing heroes through the power of nature and relationship.

Our Vision: To create a sanctuary of solace and rejuvenation exclusively

dedicated to our nation's heroes—veterans, first responders and their families.


A Hero's Haven: Stand with Our Protectors!

Every day, our first responders and military members confront scenes and are thrusted into situations that leave lasting marks on their lives. They are the unsung heroes who face the unimaginable to protect and serve, often carrying silent burdens that go unnoticed.

Our mission is simple yet profound – to provide a sanctuary where healing begins and resilience is built.

Our society needs healthy and helpful service personnel and first responders for us all

to thrive and enjoy our liberties and freedom, yet where do these men and women go

when they need services. The staff and mission of Guardian Grounds Ranch are

focused on bringing healing and making a positive impact with the mental health of our

national heroes. Jason has worked tirelessly to help those around him achieve mental

wellness by bringing an amazing multifaceted successful mental health program to the

fire department and Guardian Grounds is the next level of treatment necessary to heal

these incredible heroes. At Shield Bearer, we are honored to work with this incredible

organization and its partner organization Camp Comrade to help promote mental

wellness to first responders and veterans.

Jason and Patty's mission is clear at Guardian Grounds Ranch, focused on providing mental health and wellness to our First Responders and Veterans. At Camp Comrade, we are excited to partner in this endeavor to provide retreat, camping, hunting, ATV's, and fishing for our Nation's heroes. Together and teamed with great American donors we will collaborate to conquer and provide the best services available to those in want or need. We look forward to current and future endeavors!

Camp Comrade

A key component to first responder mental health is having a place of solace. A ranch that can provide that solace with like minded brothers and sisters will only help reduce the mental health crisis we are experiencing across the job. Guardian Grounds Ranch provides a branch of support the fire service has not yet seen.

Sometimes all we need as Veterans and First Responders is a place to get away and be with our people and decompress, no better therapy than that and is why we need organizations like Guardian Grounds!

The amount of healing from one event can be life-altering for veterans and first responders. I donated because we need to give more for those that give us their all.
