• QUESTION: Do program participants living on the Ranch have to work the ranch?
    ANSWER: Working on the ranch is NOT required. All work and internship opportunities are optional.

  • QUESTION: Is ReGroup Foundation a non-profit? I noticed the web address is a .com instead of a .org
    ANSWER: ReGroup Foundation is a non-profit. When we first started the .org website was not avialable and we are currently focusing our resources on Veterans - stay tuned as we update the website.

Hello World!
  • Jeff Osterhoudt was our first veteran to participate in our programs and it to date our biggest success story! We are proud of his ongoing success.  Watch his story HERE

  • "I recently discovered this organization through a conversation with Bryce Mahoney of Darby Project, when discussing personal goals. Bryce informed me of ReGroup Foundation, being very similar to my idea, and passed my information to Antonio Ruiz. Immediately after linking us up, Antonio reached out to me. He spoke with me not as a recruiter, but as a mentor. It’s very evident he truly cares for the mission, and all like minded missions. Which solidifies the fact where his heart is. ReGroup Foundation has a very well thought out and practical plan to confront the biggest obstacles Veterans face in transition. I look forward to being a part of this organization, even at the lowest level. My personal military to civilian transition has been a difficult process. Some issues were self inflicted and poor decision making on my part. Some issues were out of my hand. I’ve faced many relationship, legal, employment, health, and housing issues since I’ve gotten out. If it wasn’t for my loving friends and family, I wouldn’t be here today. But it shouldn’t be on the people I love. There needs to be a program established to ensure good, quality, and well trained Veterans, can transition successfully into the world. ReGroup is addressing this."      ~ Korey Cunningham

  • "I left Wyoming to run in the 2019 NYC Marathon. While I was gone, I found out that my estranged spouse moved out of our home and emptied my accounts and filed a nuisance protective order (that would eventually be dismissed), and severed all contact between me and my children. I watched helplessly from afar as my accounts were drained, and life as I knew it was lit on fire. My plane wouldn't leave for another 3 days, and I was being eaten alive by uncertainty. What I was certain about was that I was coming back to an empty home, devoid of my family. I moved to the wilds of Wyoming 3 years ago and have yet to make any friends outside of my local search and rescue unit. So as I traveled home I was bracing myself to be completely on my own, abandoned and hopeless left to fight the worst battle of my life. As devastating as it all happened, it didn't take long to get the word out that I was in crisis. I was shocked to experience the response that I did from the veteran community. There were a handful of organizations that rushed to support me in the midst of my crisis. ReGroup Foundation was at the forefront in their efforts to help me when I thought I had absolutely nothing or anyone. Their support was crucial in those early days, and is still vitally important as I navigate this new reality. All the phone calls, the text messages, new contacts, all their resources, and of course their earnest care and concern for my well being, were more valued and meaningful than I can accurately put into words. They were there for me when I thought no one would be. Thank you ReGroup Foundation for making a difference in my life and caring about a lone Ranger in the wilds of Wyoming."   ~ Derek Dutton

IMG 6964Mission: Transition

Our mission is to support new veterans through a more successful transition.
We are doing this by building ReGroup Ranches where veterans (and their families) can engage in transition services to prevent the hardships that often lead to homelessness & suicides.
Select at risk of hardship veterans will be eligible for free onsite housing services while they complete our 18 month 3 Phase Program.

Phase 1 - Discovery
  • Transition Team is formed and Transition Plan is started.
  • Discover new self through counseling to address PTS, couple/family issues, substance abuse.
  • Participate in Physical, Mental, and Spiritual Exploration programs.
  • Research all options (school vs work).
  • Complete all benefits paperwork.
  • Complete financial planning.
  • Explore our network of veteran service providers.
Phase 3 - Deployment
  • Transition Plan is deployed as they start work or school.
  • Peer to Peer Support - Interact with their new civilian peers with support of military peers at end of each day for veterans living on site and regular social events for all other veterans.
  • Veterans living on site can save up funds for down payments/deposits on housing.
Phase 2 - Development
  • Continue to work with Transition Team on Transition Plan.
  • Work in mentorship/job shadowing type arrangements in their career field to get hands on experience before.
  • applying for jobs or starting school.
  • Start applying for schools/jobs.
  • Identify new "mission" through volunteerism in the community.

Growing Healthier Americans !

A key success factor is our business model to ReGroup Foundation’s business model is that each of the ReGroup Ranches will become self sustaining; meaning that donations will only be required during the initial acquisition and development phase of each of the properties.
Once construction is complete, a variety of agri/aquaculture enterprises will operate to provide funds sufficient to cover the Foundation expenses as well as to generate funds for expansion goals to purchase and develop future ReGroup Ranches across the country.

This plan will:
  • Grow some of the food for residents on the ReGroup Ranch.
  • Generate funding for Foundation’s housing and programs from sales to local restaurants and markets.
  • Provide agri-therapy and bee therapy.
  • Introduce veterans to modern farming techniques and provide those interested with on-site education and entrepreneurial training available exclusively to veterans through state and federal programs.
  • Provide fresh, locally grown food to our communities in order to reduce our dependency on other countries for our supply.
The first ReGroup Ranch is under construction in New Braunfels, Texas.
This property will have a two story building with vertical grow aquaponics operation and beekeeping capable of generating an average annual gross sales of $2 million growing trout, tilapia, prawns, vegetables, greens, herbs & honey to sell to local restaurants & farmer’s markets.
16 Veterans will be housed on this smaller property during each 18 month class cycle.
