Veterans Resource Center

A Comprehensive Veterans Resource Center

Veteran Health Services’ presiding goal is to become the nation’s premier healthcare clinic for returning service men and women suffering from mental and behavioral issues, including PTSD, substance abuse, and more.

We understand that this task is substantial, and that our initial reach may be limited as we lay the groundwork for our first facility. In the interim, we hope to serve as a comprehensive veterans resource center, using this site as a portal to organizations, institutions, agencies, and nonprofits nationwide that may be able to provide additional answers, places of refuge, or to simply lend an ear to those in need.

For immediate help: call the Veterans Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 and press 1 to talk to someone now.
