We provide immediate assistance to "Veterans in need" in order to help situations (based on life matters that have become out of control) that have taken a turn for the worse. Through our hands-on, Pay-it-Forward approach, we help facilitate positive solutions before it's too late. We work hard for our Veterans, but in order to make an even bigger impact, we need your help - because sometimes, it takes a tribe to help the individual. Please, take action below. Thank you.

Why We Do What We Do

Our Founder and President, Tracey Nazarenus, had a personal experience with her son returning from service, and as she says “Thank God someone alerted me to what he was dealing with.” Further, many of us on the team here are either Veterans who have shared these experiences, or family of Veterans who have.

The video to the left shows a really good example of why we do what we do.

Please join us in our effort to help our Veterans. Thank you.

Founded by Tracey Nazarenus, the Crusaders Valor for Veterans™ manage a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that runs the "Second Chance Ranch" for young girls. The organization engages the girls in hard work, equestrian competition, and a pay-it-forward program that helps Veterans and their families who have fallen into financial peril due to their disability.

With help and contributions from Commonwealth Capital and Sprocket Network, this platform was devised to help raise the funds, awareness and engagement necessary to support the ongoing and GROWING efforts of the Crusaders Valor for Veterans™ Network.

As Tracey says "Sometimes it takes a tribe to help the individual" and so, we are happy to release the all new Valor for Veterans platform and "Social Support Network for Veterans."

“even giving our kids Christmas“

I am a Veteran who reached out to Tracey (and the Crusaders) on a prayer… Without hesitation she was there, helping get our car repaired, helping with our bills, even giving our kids Christmas. This woman and her Crusaders are a God send to all of us veterans.

“Thank You“

If you are a Veteran struggling, regardless the issue, I highly recommend contacting the Crusaders as they want to help. Tracey and the Crusader group: Thank you for your compassion and the help you provided. It was truly a blessing and my girls and I are grateful!!

“don’t just help with the utilities“

These ladies don’t just help with the utilities, they have so many resources to help with whatever needs that the family may have from a simple bill being paid to helping veterans with their claims and military benefits.

“Proud Supporter“

I am a Proud Supporter of Crusaders Valor for Veterans™. As a representative of Commonwealth Capital, I cannot think of a better way to give back than to help those who have sacrificed so much for us.

★ Help Us Help a Veteran

If you search Google for how many Veteran suicides per day, it says 22. That's an old statistic from a few years ago. The recent statistics show that it's down to 20 thanks to the efforts of people and organizations like the Crusaders.

Now, with the Crusaders Valor for Veterans™ platform, we hope to drive that number down drastically over the months and years ahead.

But we can only do it with your help. Please get involved with the community here on V4V. And please do share this important effort on your social networks.

You can also choose to become the 'boots on the ground' for any local help you can give for Vets in your area (Update Volunteer Info in your Profile)
