Vet Centers

Vet Centers welcome home war veterans by providing readjustment services and assisting their family members toward a successful post-war adjustment in or near their respective communities. Vet Center counselors also provide bereavement counseling to parents, spouses, and children of armed forces personnel (including Reservists/National Guard members) who have died in the service of their country. Vet Center services include individual readjustment counseling, referral for benefits assistance, group readjustment counseling, liaison with community agencies, marital and family counseling, substance abuse information and referral, job counseling and placement, sexual trauma and PTSD counseling, and community education.

All services are free-of-charge to eligible veterans, their families, and significant others. Vet Center staff protects the privacy of all clients. All records related to treatment are strictly confidential and will not be shared with the VA.
