  • Peer Services and support groups:
    • The VVFS Veteran Peer Specialists (VPS) are veterans representing diverse backgrounds, military, post-military and transition experiences, particularly Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). The VPS identifies needs, develops a coordinated services plan, and connects the veteran/service member to community resources while providing direct support as they navigate the process towards achievement of their goals. In addition, VPS conducts bi-weekly groups exclusive to service members to promote camaraderie, provide information and to further service members’ and veterans’ pursuit of self-reliance and the pursuit of wellness.
