Provide healthy, supportive living environments
to transitioning veterans to prevent hardships 

Our Story

ReGroup Foundation was founded in May 2015 when Army Ranger veteran Antonio Ruiz and his partner Stephanie Solton; the mother of an Air Force A10 crew chief, decided it was time to do something about the alarming statistics surrounding our veterans.

Specifically, they aimed to stop the suicide rates and homelessness so they went to work researching the problems and interviewing homeless veterans. What they discovered was that there are many smaller issues that lead to the bigger problems.

They also discovered there are many great veteran non profits doing amazing things; however, there are clear gaps.

One of the biggest gaps is providing the transitioning veterans a place to live while they take the time to explore their options, develop, and deploy a sound transition plan.
A place where they are surrounded by other transitioning veterans.

They need a Place and Time to "ReGroup"

It breaks my heart that our brave family, friends, and neighbors that were willing to serve in our military and risk their lives to provide our freedoms are expected to transition out of service easily and when they don't they feel hopeless enough to commit suicide.
They went through weeks, months, and years of intense training to become soldiers, marines, sailors, and airman. They need time to train to become veterans.
They may struggle with PTS or the new dynamics of their family relationships after long absences from multiple deployments. They may be fighting physical pains or emotional pains but there is always hope.  
We CAN do better! We WILL do better!

Our Plan
Our plan is to create ReGroup Ranches. These will be resort like ranches where the transitioning veterans will work on their transition.
