Vision:Building strong military families across America!
Mission: To rejuvenate and strengthen the marriages and parent-child relationships of our nation’s military families through fun and bonding activities at our premier outdoor recreation and learning centers .
Strategy: Beginning at Fort Bragg, NC, home of the Airborne and Special Operations, RHF will construct “Rick’s Place,” an outdoor recreation center for military families to enjoy. The 26-acre campus and its high quality facilities will be open daily and free for military families. It will offer horseback riding, lake fishing, family gardening plots, an indoor/ outdoor playground, a splash pad, art, nature trails and many other exciting activities. The resort’s custom designed modern Lodge will feature a coffee shop, grilling area, fire pits, outdoor seating and meeting space. This is designed to inspire an atmosphere of relaxation and rejuvenation at Rick’s Place to honor the sacrifice of the “silent majority” of our active duty military families who continue to deploy in defense of our nation.
There are many organizations who use a similar model as this by providing a retreat for military families, but they do not place those retreats where military families live. They have to take vacation to go there. Our goal is to provide a place or atmosphere that will allow what time military families to have together to be high quality time by creating a campus for them to enjoy on a sustainable basis.
