NewsMax Saturday Report Featuring Open Doors to Future Possibilities

1. VETERANS DAILY SERVICES

 

Our mission is to provide Veterans with a holistic approach to their wellbeing and health that considers the entire person rather than defining them with their symptoms. This holistic approach includes their physical, emotional, social, and spiritual wellbeing and explores the unique ways each of these individuals make sense of and give meaning to all that they have witnessed and/or engaged in. Through our services, we also intend to help homeless Veterans transition from homelessness to a more stable living condition. These services are free of charge for the Veterans and their families.
