Creating awareness is the first step in making change. Each year we strive to build through various fundraising events and are always looking for amazing people who want to get involved.
We believe that the main elements to a great event are the people, the experience, and the take away. Be sure to mark your calendars with our upcoming events where you can learn, network & be a part of positive change.
We value our volunteers and invite you to join our team. If you want to help create a safer community, work together with awesome people, and help save lives, please let us know check it out here
MEANINGFUL TRANSFORMATIONS HAPPEN HERE
We believe there is no greater mission than helping veterans, first responders, and their families rediscover hope, purpose, and a future that is truly worth living.
Traumas that affect combat veterans and first responders touch everyone: families, friends, neighbors, and the community.
To help transform struggle to strength, Ray’s Hope Rescue and Exclusively First Responders are working side by side to create safe facilities where those who are struggling are embraced and understood, and where they can find the path to a life worth living.
A GROWING NEED
-Nearly 30% of the 3 million Post-9/11 combat veterans and active first responders struggle with traumatic stress.
-We lose more First Responders to suicide every year than in the line of duty.
-Studies consistently show that conventional treatments such as talk therapy and pharmaceuticals alone, are either ineffective, inaccessible, or both.
-We also believe that trauma is contagious, and our programs are designed for the entire family.
-Did you know that 20 veterans die every day by suicide EVERY DAY
-Did you know that First Responders commit suicide 37% more than the general population (source: SAMSHA)
TRANSFORMING LIVES TOGETHER
Our combined mission:
To Guide First Responders and Military Veterans to a place of Well being and to help them to thrive in the aftermath of their trauma.
Our programs teach our participants how to make peace with their past, live in the present, and begin planning for their future and are based on the science of Posttraumatic Growth (PTG), a process designed to transform times of deep struggle into profound strength and lifelong growth.
STRENGTHENING THE FAMILY CONNECTION
WE understand the sacrifices and stresses of military, first responder and veteran families. We believe that each family member plays a crucial role in the health and wellbeing of the entire family.
Through our signature Family programs, families have an opportunity to learn more about themselves and each other and rediscover the love and connections that brought them together.
In 2023, Ray’s Hope Rescue and Exclusively First Responders, both 501c3’s, agreed that with their missions in total alignment it made sense to pull resources and combine efforts to fundraise for our causes and created ‘US Frontline Collective’ as a team and will encompass military, first responders and frontline workers who are in need of our services.
Located in Santa Clarita Valley, CA, The US Frontline Collective Hub will serve as the collaboration center for the development, delivery, study, and scaling of our groundbreaking therapeutic facilities and posttraumatic growth-based programs.
With more military veterans and first responders living in Santa Clarita Valley than anywhere in the United States, our local community has been an invaluable strategic partner and supporter, enabling us to begin helping military vets, first responders and their families right here in our own backyard.
The first of many fundraising ventures as a team will be held MONDAY, APRIL 29, 2024 at the Sand Canyon Resort & Country Club. Be sure to save the date.

PREMIER SCREENING OF PTSD911
While Conrad was filming another documentary, he had ride alongs with First Responders and learned the depth of their emotional trauma, the suicide rate among them, how they lose their job when they are suffering, and so much more…bottom line is, Conrad could not turn away from what was right in front of him; PTSD & Suicide among First Responders. BRAVO to Conrad and his insights! This documentary will create awareness of a problem that needs our attention, and rather than look the other way as a community we can join together and help the people who help us every day!
This event is going to be THE EVENT OF THE YEAR that will change your perception of who our first responders are, what they do, and what they need from us to survive!
Come early at 5pm, wear what you want, but we encourage you to dress for the Red Carpet. Arrive at 5 to do some networking and see what our sponsors have to offer. Take a Red Carpet Picture with your family and friends. Dinner will begin at 6pm and the event will really take off at 7pm. We have an amazing speaker, will have a variety of high profile people attending, a silent auction and the big reveal of PTSD911 the Documentary.
We are grateful for our Amazing Sponsors; Higher Vision Church & GUARDIANS for their donations and support of our event. Thank you sincerely!
