*Review our Mission and Vision statements and discuss changes to better reflect our
Evolution/Direction since a lot has changed in our society in a very short amount of time since
we were founded:

 

Our Mission Statement Currently reads: “Whereas we find it totally Unacceptable to lose more
American Service Veterans and First Responders to Suicide than combat, we strive to fill the
gaps in the current VA system. We are operated by Veterans and First Responders, for Veterans
and First Responders and aspire to instill hope by renewing life’s purpose and inspiring hope
that personal redemption can be attained by Veterans supporting Veterans through their
darkest hours. We will fulfill our creed to leave no one behind”.

 

Our Vision Statement Currently Reads: “What we envision for the Roy Williams Foundation is an
ever-growing network of dedicated donors and volunteers. Veterans and Civilians working
together to provide outreach and support to our Veteran, Law Enforcement and First
Responder Communities. We understand that different people have different personalities and
that some people might not be able to relate to the invisible and lasting wounds that are
inflicted on the people who experience combat and other violent acts. Therefore, we aspire to
bring as many combat veterans, Law Enforcement Professionals and other First Responders into
our organization as possible with civilian support to help and encourage people with PTSD to
believe in a better tomorrow. Through outdoor activities and companionship, our network
strives to connect quietly suffering Veterans with other Veterans who have learned to manage
their PTSD and are willing to help others. All members are passionate about this outreach and
are dedicated to educating themselves and others about Crisis Intervention methods to stem
the tide of Veteran Suicide. If they find themselves unable to help an individual, they will
endeavor to find someone else in the network who can better relate to the individual to offer
support. We envision working with and complimenting other Veterans Outreach organizations
to create as big of a network as possible. Our funding will go toward formal crisis intervention
training for our members as well as expense reimbursements (gas, food, lodging), outreach
efforts (i.e. publicity and advertising) and eventually things like hunting and fishing licenses. Our
funding will also be used, in special cases, to pay for the best ongoing professional psychological
counseling for the most troubled Veterans, Law Enforcement and First Responder Professionals
who need more hope than the RWF can provide.

 

*Mr. Means with a Non-Profit organization based in Texas called “Reel Thanks” that takes
Veterans on fishing trips will join us to discuss what him and his organization has learned over
the years that they have been in Operation. Please think of some quality and important
questions to ask of him.
