In our continued mission to do more for veterans, below are resources to help veterans with job searching, VA benefits and veteran entertainment.
At this time we are only adding resources that are non-profit organizations that we have personally worked with and can vouch for.
If you’re a Veteran in crisis or Service member in crisis — or you're concerned about one — there are caring, qualified VA responders standing by to help 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
The crisis line can be reached at 1-800-273-8255 and Press 1.
Online chatting is also available, the crisis chat like the crisis line is a free, anonymous, confidential resource that’s available to any Service member, including members of the National Guard and Reserve, and any Veteran, even if you’re not registered with VA or enrolled in VA health care.
Whatever's got you down — chronic pain, anxiety, depression, sleeplessness, anger, or ever-disturbing memories of your tour of duty — a specially trained responder can provide support day or night.
