Category: Veteran OrganizationDescription:
Often caregivers of veterans suffer from caregiver burnout and financial stress due to the veterans’ injuries once relieved from active duty. They often feel overwhelmed with the resources available to them along with how to obtain financial freedom when those resources do not apply to their situation. As a result, the veterans’ support system is severely damaged. Without proper support from the caregiver our families on the home front cannot heal properly leaving the caregiver and children in a state of distress. This stress can be alleviated by offering the caregiver a peer support, resources, domestic violence and relationship assistance, mental health services, and family activities. Our vision is to build stronger support systems for the caregiver, in turn strengthening the overall family relationship of the household.
In addition HH6 assists with emergency financial relief for caregivers in domestic violence situations. Many caregivers experiencing domestic abuse cannot leave their veteran due to financial hardships or fear. It is our intent to assist them to overcome these hardships to remove themselves from the situation. Overall the end goal would be to unite the veteran and caregiver through proper treatment. When this goal cannot be obtained, the case manager assigned to the client will assist the caregiver with resources to begin their journey in providing a stable home for their family.Address: Richlands
