Co-op Bank Supports Vets with Disabilities

Hope, optimism and resiliency are what CoBank hopes to bring out in disabled military veterans who participate in a Colorado program called No Barriers Warriors.

After a year’s hiatus, CoBank is once again sponsoring the participation of 50 vets in the outdoor expedition program, which will take place in July and August in Red Feather Lakes. Nominations of vets for the program must come from local electric co-ops that are active members with CoBank, so those interested in participating should contact their local co-op for information.

The Fort Collins-based program offers vets opportunities to tackle personal challenges, stretch physical and emotional boundaries and overcome barriers to positive change. It offers a step-by-step way to break through challenges and reconnect with purpose.

Deadline for applications is May 7.

CoBank provides loans and financial services to electric and other cooperatives, agribusinesses, rural public utilities and other farm credit associations, who collectively own CoBank.
