Suffers From PTSD

This week we will publish the “Case of the Week” from our corporate office where we see hundreds of veterans each month. We like to publish cases from the regional offices to encourage more veterans to go to the offices for help.

A young Army veteran recently discharged didn’t transition well from military to civilian life. He suffers from PTSD and found himself with broken relationships and unable to keep a job which then led to homelessness, often sleeping under a bridge.

He was referred to our organization from Family Services. We immediately provided him shelter, food, clothing, and bus passes. He came back several times for additional supplies while he was getting his life together. Our Services Director, Bob Julian, worked with Family Services to get him counseling which has helped him manage the PTSD. In the meantime, he has been able to apply for jobs and now he has a very good chance of securing employment.
