Volunteer for 2016 by clicking below:
We have joined forces with Warrior Overwatch from Winder Ga. and with STAGVETSINC from Milledgeville GA.
Comfort Farms is a working farm in a secret location in middle Georgia where we work with our veterans to get them the therapy they have earned and get them back into society in a productive fashion. We specialize in recreating that feeling for Veterans of contributor, that feeling of belonging and brotherhood. Check out Jon’s Story at www.stagvetsinc.com
Warrior Overwatch has broken ground in North Ga. working on herbs and root plants, they have also become the test site for an aquaponics system, were very excited for their growth in the new developments right around the corner. Stay tuned to see the amazing work this team puts together for our Georgia Veterans.
We are proud to announce the beginning of our breeding system in Georgia, we will breed AKC registered German Shepherds so that we can enhance the quality of life for other Veterans in need of “Service Dawgs!” Every Service DAWG provided will be 100% donated to the Veteran.
A New Partnership with Alexanderhof training academy is formed, stay tuned to see their amazing work training CGC, CGCA, Therapy & Service Dogs.
We are very proud to share that our 2014 effort has surpassed all previous years. We provided food to over 5 thousand humans- one plate at a time. We had over 125 volunteers, many of which were college students who took time from their holiday time while at home visiting their relatives. Our efforts continue to grow and we could not be happier, this year we have partnered with the Effie Foundation to create more events and continue spreading our outreach throughout the state of Georgia.
We are very proud to share that over 1600 volunteer hours were recorded during this years Christmas event. Our volunteers prepared and cooked over 1300 pounds of poultry. This year our CHRISTmas dinner included, rotisserie wood roasted turkey with gravy, homemade macaroni and cheese, a traditional bread & sage stuffing and bottled water. Our collective efforts included the help of over 126 teen aged youth and over 70 adults. Together we were able to feed 2969 friends in four cities across Georgia. We also donated 800 portions of roasted turkey and dressing to the Fort Street United Methodist Church in Atlanta. Thanks to so many for their donations and volunteer time which helped our nonprofit organization provide the largest number of meals served in our communities in our history.

Two of our founder’s children (Oscar Antonio La Madrid IV, 15 & Daniela Rosalia La Madrid 13) were interviewed by Fox Five News on a cold afternoon on December 28th in downtown Atlanta. They helped organize, prepare and cook the meals that would be served in the streets of Athens, Atlanta, Gainesville, & Lawrenceville Georgia.
Our mission is to provide a vehicle for our youth to help our fellow Georgia Veterans & citizens by coaching our youth to provide hot meals to those living in the streets all around our communities. This will promote altruistic youth into positive adults and helps to provide an awakening experience to our Veterans.
We aim to provide the vehicle for every Veteran to enjoy a proper quality of life that they have EARNED, when they put their hand up & took the oath to enlist and defend our country, The United States of America. Every year we continue growing & introduce a stronger support element which fuels our volunteers, and more importantly provides resource to our Veterans.
Our message: Know someone cares about you and together WE can work for a better tomorrow.
