Helping America Now Founder Raji Rykert Featured On The Build Business Acumen Podcast With Nathaniel Schooler

In 2018, Helping America Now (H.A.N.), a 501 (c)(3) non-profit status organization, was established to provide housing and scholarships for U.S. Veterans and mentally disabled adults. While working with the local Military Resource Council and taking in homeless veterans, H.A.N. discovered that although well intentioned, most agencies and individuals were receiving donations and grants, but the necessary funds were not always getting to those truly in need. The layers of “red tape” also hindered vulnerable people from getting the much-needed resources of food, housing and transportation. Helping America was created to meet this very real need. Founder, Raji Rykert established H.A.N. with the goal to:

  • Provide emergency or transitional resources to homeless U.S. veterans
  • Provide housing at 3Faces Ranch, a licensed adult residential facility
  • Offer monetary assistance in the form of scholarship for education or vocational training or a specific, pressing need.

Using her own personal funds and enlisting the financial support of close family, friends and former colleagues, Raji works with agencies and their case managers to identify where assistance can be offered. To date, over a dozen individuals have received the necessary assistance to rebuild their lives and begin a new life chapter.
