INDIVISIBLE WITH JOHN STUBBINS: Set Apart Farms Aims to Heal Veterans and Families

Published

on

In a recent episode of “Indivisible with John Stubbins,” the spotlight was on Set Apart Farms, featuring its owners, James and Angela Hollon. The couple, also partners in the show, discussed their mission to heal veterans and their families. The conversation emphasized the often-overlooked aspect of family support in the veteran healing process.

Set Apart Farms, a faith-based organization, addresses the challenges faced by military and veteran families, drawing from the personal experiences of James and Angela. Angela, a veteran spouse, shared how their struggles led them to establish the organization, highlighting the lack of support systems for families navigating the complexities of the VA system.

The couple recounted their journey, including a critical surgery that took years to secure but was ultimately botched, leading to a two-year battle with broken systems and insufficient communication. Their experience exposed the gaps in existing programs that primarily focused on the veteran, leaving families without proper resources for healing.

James expressed frustration at the allocation of resources, drawing attention to the living conditions of some veteran families compared to detainees in Guantanamo Bay. The couple emphasized the need for comprehensive healing, criticizing clinical approaches often involving pharmaceuticals and excluding the family unit.

Angela and James advocate for holistic, faith-based healing, incorporating mind, body, and soul approaches. They underscored the importance of including families in therapy and support programs, as opposed to isolating veterans, and highlighted the detrimental impact of the family unit’s dissolution on veterans’ well-being.

The Hollons outlined Set Apart Farms’ plans, including establishing a physical location for immersive, long-term healing experiences. The envisioned facility aims to provide an array of therapies, partnering with private sectors for music and art therapy and faith-based counseling, all customized to meet the diverse needs of individual families.

The couple urged support for their cause through contributions and donations to Set Apart Farms, emphasizing the opportunity for individuals to make a tangible difference in the lives of veterans and their families.
