Trouble with GI benefits? We can help
ENSURING VETERANS' ACCESS TO HOUSING, HEALTH CARE, AND INCOME.
Most of our nation’s veterans make a successful transition back to civilian life, but it is not always easy. The VA’s records indicate that 22 veterans commit suicide each day. An estimated 30% of our troops have come home with Post Traumatic Stress and countless service members struggle with Traumatic Brain Injuries, depression, and substance abuse. When these veterans face legal challenges, such as eviction or an improper termination of benefits, it dramatically increases the risk that they will spiral further into illness, become homeless, or commit suicide. The Veteran Advocacy Project intervenes before veterans reach the breaking point by ensuring their access to housing, health care, and income.
We are partnered with VA hospitals, mental health clinics, and local veterans’ groups to reach service members where they are. While our attorneys tackle the legal challenges, our advocates ensure that our clients are connected to appropriate social services. With a dedicated team, the project allows veterans to achieve the stability needed to regain their health and rebuild their lives.
