Services Offered by the Vet Centers

Vet Centers offer broad readjustment services to military veterans. Counseling for military traumas, employment and family problems is our main focus, but we also provide referral services for VA benefits and medical assistance and liaisons with community agencies.

Individual and group counseling is available for veterans and significant others. Marital, family, and sexual trauma counseling often is provided on site or is available through referral to local VAMC's. We help veterans by providing substance abuse information and referrals, along with job counseling.

History of the Vet Centers: Vet Centers first opened in late 1979, providing services to Vietnam era veterans. Congress and the president later opened Vet Center doors to veterans of ALL wars and conflicts. Wars are different. Attitudes and homecomings change. Vet Centers offer common ground for men and women who served our country during war.

Vet Centers Staff: Vet Center counselors offer 20 years of wisdom about veterans concerns. Many Vet Center counselors served themselves in combat zones. You can take advantage of our experience, service and community networking. We are ready to help bring you and your loved ones home from war.
