Groundbreaking: Regroup Foundation

Jun 30, 11:30am

New Braunfels Chamber

Please join us in welcoming ReGroup Foundation‘s new location to New Braunfels! ReGroup Foundation is a national non-profit that is pro-actively preventing homelessness, suicide, and any of the other struggles our veterans and former military service members face by providing them a place to live during transition out of military service to civilian society. We will provide military service members (and their family members) housing on our Ranches for 18+/- months at no cost to them. This time will be spent getting any counseling, therapy, coaching, mentoring, tutoring, or acquiring skills needed for their civilian lives. Being a hybrid non profit, means that once the initial financial front end load has been met (land purchased and buildings built) these locations will become self sustaining due to the farming and ranching profits generated.
