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 come home with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and countless servicemembers struggle with Traumatic Brain Injuries, depression, and substance abuse. The Veteran Advocacy Project intervenes before veterans reach a breaking point by ensuring their access to housing, health care, and income.
