Military, Veteran, and Family Services 

Our program assists with transitioning service members, veterans of all eras, spouses and family members with resource assistance and benefit navigation.

Here to Help!

Military, Veteran, and Family Services supports the community through careful case management, resource navigation, and financial wellness during challenging life transitions focused on sustainability and resiliency.

Available Services

Supportive Services offers a bridge to sustainability. Our case managers provide short term non-clinical case management. We provide financial and non-financial resources and help set realistic attainable goals and provide resource connection. These services include:

  • Financial Assistance with essential needs (rent, mortgage, utilities, etc.)
  • Food Security
  • Connection to education partners, legal partners, veteran benefits, and more

We’re committed to teaching our veterans how to do money” and achieve a level of financial wellness that allows them to live a financially flexible life. The program focuses on building money management skills through financial education teaching personal finance concepts, financial coaching offering guidance and support, and credit counseling teaching the basics of credit management. We recognize that a contributing factor to a Veteran’s well-being and security is the health of their finances. To support those needs, we have partnered with several providers who work directly with veterans and their families on more aspects of managing their financial needs.
