Help Our Veterans

You Are Not Alone Veterans Foundation Proudly Serves Veterans and their Families! We provide resources and expertise to assist with obtaining housing, recieving entitled benefits, maximizing employment opportunities, and providing counseling whenever needed.

Our veterans are returning to an economy challenged by record unemployment rates and a stagnant job market. At the federal, state and local levels we are failing to help veterans transition from military service to the civilian work force. After World War II, exemplary programs and support for veterans created the American middle class and helped the “greatest generation” to become great. We owe this generation nothing less. We are dedicated to helping our veteran’s who are in need.

With your support we can make this country a better place for all veteran’s who have fought for this country.

How It All Started

Ronald Sykes is a veteran and the founder of, You Are Not Alone Veteran’s Foundation. Ronald’s story is very inspiring. He hit rock bottom after coming back home from the Iraq war. He was suddenly faced with fighting two wars. He had to fight for his health and a roof over his head. Although, his struggle to get his life back in order was not easy, something good came out of it. He realized that there was not enough resources to help veterans in need. As a result he was inspired to establish a non-for profit organization that will assist veterans with receiving the services they need. His own real life experience is a testimony of how helping one another makes this country stronger.

A Little of How We Help

Food Pantry | Hot Meals

We understand that times can be hard; and you may find yourself in a situation where food is unavailable to you. Our food pantry is an emergency resource for those veterans who are in need of food. We also understand that food is one of the most basic necessities of life and no veteran should go without it. We also strive to provide a place for veterans to grab a hot meal during holidays in order to lift your spirits up and offer encouragement.

Benefits and Entitlements Assistance

Each individual circumstance may vary from person to person. We take the time to learn what your needs are to find the appropriate services that will benefit you as a veteran. We provide assistance with obtaining health care, public assistance, food stamps, and other entitlements that may be available to you as a veteran.

Transportation Assistance

Let’s face it, traveling back and forth to appointments is not cheap in New York City. We work with you to find transportation that is convenient and affordable.

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) Counseling

Dealing with the past can be hard. Instead of telling others how you feel, you may keep your feelings bottled up. But talking with a therapist can help you get better. We work hard to assist you in finding PTSD counseling services in your area. We know how beneficial PTSD counseling can be for your overall well being and highly recommend it if you are suffering with PTSD.

Support Groups

Support Groups are very beneficial because you can connect with others who have experienced what you have. It reminds us that we are not alone in our struggles. It also encourages us to lift one another up especially when we are down. We provide support groups for our veterans to meet, share, and discuss topics that interest them as a group.
