NEED FOR THE ALLIANCE
Did you know that there are over 250 government and non-government
organizations providing some form of support for Military, Veterans and their Families in the St. Louis area? Most of the Military and Veterans they are trying to help don't even know they exist much less how to connect with them. St. Louis Regional Alliance For The Troops (RAFTT) is on a mission to fix that.

OUR PLEDGE

The members of this Alliance pledge to expand the cooperation and coordination across Governmental Organizations and Non-Governmental Organizations in support of Military Men and Women, their Families, and Veterans who live and work in the St. Louis Region.

OUR VISION
That no Service Member, Veteran, or Military Family Member suffers needlessly due to a lack of knowledge about programs and services available to them in the St. Louis area.

OUR MISSION
To facilitate connectivity between governmental and non-governmental organizations and enhance their ability to provide coordinated support for Service Members, Veterans and their Families.

EXECUTION OF THE MISSION
The RAFTT.ORG website has been launched as a key vehicle to enhance awareness of the many resources available to the military community. The website, underwritten by Daugherty Business Solutions and shaped by the area NGO’s, is intended to help Service Members, Veterans and their Families find needed services and support.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT
RAFTT has gained the financial support of many leading companies in the region. Other support comes from energized corporations who contribute a variety of services and organizational expertise to the initiative. KMOX, for example, crafted an extraordinary media campaign to help publicize the Alliance and its members. As membership grows, so does the capacity of the Alliance to provide for the needs of the men and women who proudly serve our country.

ALLIANCE LEADERSHIP
H.E.R.O.E.S. Care, Daugherty Business Solutions, and KMOX radio, “The Voice of St. Louis”, came together to help the NGO and GO community bring the Alliance concept to life.

Daugherty Business Solutions (DBS) is a growing IT/Technology company based in St. Louis. Searching for a way to provide meaningful and broad-based support for our Military and Veterans, they found the RAFTT Concept to be a powerful mechanism to achieve that goal. DBS has donated hundreds of hours of project management in support of this effort, and provided critical technical expertise to design and implement the website. DBS has led the outreach to the corporate community to clarify the nature of RAFTT and solicit their support.

KMOX, CBS Radio, “The Voice of St. Louis”, has tremendous passion for
supporting the Military and Veterans in our area. They have helped the RAFTT movement develop an “Awareness Media Campaign” that will help many of the organizations supporting the Military and Veterans get their story out. KMOX is interviewing the leadership of these organizations and those Military and Veterans that use these resources to tell the story of what they do and how to access their services.



FOUNDING MEMBERS
These are the organizations that have worked together to frame the RAFTT concept:

ESGR, USO of Missouri, Inc., H.E.R.O.E.S. Care, The Mission Continues, VA Hospital, VA, Fisher House, Hire Heroes USA, MSCCN and Show Me Heroes. As membership grows, others will have the opportunity to engage in the further shaping of the initiative and to increase its relevance and impact.
