Combat Veterans Cowboy Up aka CVCU was incorporated in 2006 and we received our 501©3 non-profit designation in 2008 with the sole purpose of developing an extremely effective recovery program for Veterans suffering with the debilitating effects of PTSD—whether it be from combat, Military Sexual Trauma (MST), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), or any other military-related trauma. CVCU incorporates Equine Assisted Psychotherapy and Equine Assisted Learning as the core methodology. The very unique techniques that have been developed over the years are proving to be the most effective treatment available today when used in conjunction with traditional mental health therapy. The next part of CVCU’s mission is to expand the program and facilities in order to serve up to 3,000 clients per year, and then to train other facilitators to open programs around the country based on this model. CVCU is in the process of obtaining needed funding from the private sector, the corporate sector and the Federal Government to accomplish this mission.
