Support Groups

We will have support groups that will meet to offer peer support and discussion in a safe environment. We are still in the process of determining how often these groups will meet.

We have partnered with a local counseling office, that will do a counseling session for $6.00 a session. For this price we will be able to help get our vets the counseling they need to be therapeutic.

The following services will have an application process that each veteran must complete to screen them for their needs of services from The Ruyts Foundation and what we can provide them with. Once approved, the following additional services are available.

Christmas Gifts

The foundation will provide stockings and presents for not only the veteran, but their family if needed. 

mental health appointment with doctor

Mental Health Appointments

Since one of the biggest reasons the mental health that is needed is not received is financially, our mental health services will make sure that the veteran is able to see their psychiatrist and therapist. We will cover the cost of the appointment so that they do not have to worry about it. 

prescription pad and pills


A lot of veterans suffer a mental health crisis because they cannot afford their medication. Our prescription plan will have us cover the cost so that they do not have to worry about whether or not they can afford their medications. 

Mesothelioma Treatment

Due to the military’s reliance on mesothelioma, many veterans are at risk of developing mesothelioma cancer. The Pleural Mesothelioma Center is a 100% free resource for those suffering from this nasty disease. They can offer 1-1 guidance and assist in finding local treatment options and doctors.

If you need someone, we are here to help.
