Enduring Families

Veterans and unsheltered people often struggle with substance use and mental health disorders. In 2013, the Council launched Enduring Families, a program which provides outpatient counseling and support services for returning military veterans and their family members, working in concert with Veterans Affairs (VA). This program focuses on the veteran family’s unique needs ranging from coping with symptoms of PTSD, depression, anxiety and addiction to teaching effective decision-making, parenting and communication skills. Services in this program are provided in person or virtually and at no cost to the veteran or their family.

In 2016, the Council launched the Enduring Families Veterans Counseling Center. The Counseling Center has been designed to facilitate individual counseling, marriage counseling, family therapy, play therapy, group counseling, and referrals to deliver a comprehensive service array. Having a stand-alone clinic with welcoming curb appeal, a comfortable lobby area, and genuinely caring staff is something all veterans truly deserve. Among the six rooms within the counseling center, is a fully-equipped play therapy room dedicated to increasing resilience, self-esteem, and the overall well-being of future generations. Spouses will receive assistance with the effects of secondary traumatic stress symptoms, the challenges of civilian transition and adjustment, and the many demands of the military lifestyle.
