The Veterans Recovery Center is a therapeutic and educational community serving Veterans who are living with mental illness and moderate to severe (PTSD) Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. We support Veterans in defining and pursuing their individual goals and visions for their future based on their personal strengths and self-chosen values & interests.
They provide opportunities for Veterans so that they may actively engage in the community as they achieve their personally defined recovery outcomes. They will work with each Veteran to instill hope, teach life skills, validate strengths, and build our community as we assist Veterans on their personal journeys to reclaim their opportunity of maintaining a better Quality of Life.
