Resilient Warrior is dedicated to the healthy and productive lives of the United States Military Veteran. We will focus on the total needs of the veteran. This includes and not limited to housing for the homeless vets on our ten acre facility, mental and physical health care needed, vocational education support, and job placement assistance. The end state is for an at risk or homeless veteran to be cared for, treated with respect and dignity, and prepared to enter our communities as productive and successful citizens. It is simply what we owe this person that wrote a blank check with their life in service of our great nation.
GW Ayers, CEO
- A nation where communities are transformed through the empowerment of each individual.
- Basic needs, such as secure and stable housing for our Veterans.
It is from this nurturing foundation that healthy, sustainable communities are not just possible, but are able to thrive.
Building a Better Future
Building a Better Future for Veterans Program provides veteran participants with an opportunity to:
- learn job skills,
- build confidence, and
- create a supportive community
Our graduate program will empower veterans to serve their country in new ways and foster lasting transformation in housing stability. We look to the future together by giving people access to resources, education, and new opportunities, which creates the possibility for personal growth, self-sufficiency, and fulfillment.
The Pay-it-Forward Veteran Housing Program provides independent housing for veterans in need of permanent housing. Studies such as HUD’s The Applicability of Housing First Models to Homeless Persons have shown that Housing First models result in long-term housing stability, improved physical and behavioral health outcomes, and reduced use of crisis services such as emergency departments, hospitals, and jails. We believe that providing a permanent and safe home for our veterans in need of long-term housing transforms overall community health.
Our Pay-it-Forward Veteran Housing Program makes possible a life of dignity, freedom, and prosperity that every veteran facing housing instability deserves.
Volunteer Lead Organization
We are patriots and we know our soldiers deserve better. Unfortunately, there have been several organizations that have tainted our efforts by lining their own pockets instead of supporting the intended cause. At the Resilient Warrior Foundation, all leadership staff are volunteers. We don’t take a dime in supporting our veteran. In fact, most of us give freely of our time and monetary resources to help restore the lives of our warriors. You can donate with confidence knowing every dollar will go towards Veteran housing and Veteran care.
We Promote Security & Stability
We know stability is the key to recovery. Our housing project is located in a small, peaceful town of Harper, KS (population 1360 in 2019) away from the busyness of city life. However, access to major services is less than an hour away in Wichita. Also, because of the generosity of Cerner CEO, there is a brand new 41 million dollar, state of the art medical facility (Patterson Medical) a few minutes from our facility. . We have partnered with Patterson who can provide emergency mental & physical health care to our Veterans in need. Our tranquil “base camp” will help Veterans to unplug from city life to begin his/her road to recovery. Every resident will have access to a fully furnished private apartment, a great hall for large gatherings & the warrior den to hang out and build community. We work with local businesses to provide job training to get our Veterans self-sustainable.
We’ve secured the facility but now we need to clean, repair & build our desired home base. We also need simple things like linens, utensils, to larger items like flooring, paint, labor. Our dream is to fill our 28 units with deserving veterans and continue to add on to our 10 acre facility.
