Securing Legal Help over the use of PTSD
My Story is:

We are a 501 (C) 3, trying to get donations for a variety of services we offer our veterans. We are the only nonprofit securing legal help for unjustified treatment in family court over the use of PTSD. We are starting with veterans that cannot afford legal help due to low retirement allotment or income. This legal help will be for restraining orders that are due to unjust filings with no other evidence, or representation for custody hearings. We will also seek legal assistance for Civil Rights violations of PTSD being used against you as well. PSR is also teamed up with vocational schools to provide scholarships to veterans with PTSD and TBI. We are trying to get the veteran out of the house and reintegrated into civilian lifestyle, while still giving our veterans’ mission oriented tasks to keep them motivated and on track for success. We are also working to put a veteran’s peer mentoring program together and to have our community of veterans help hold others to their goals. As PSR grows we will be adding more services that will directly assist all veterans and the community’s needs.

 

 

Veterans Employment Committee of Stanislaus County

 

Stanislaus County has an estimated 28,000 veterans with thousands being out of work, and hundreds being unsheltered homeless. We provide clothing assistance, and gas cards to veterans going in for interviews. We also provide follow up services after the interview, if our veterans get the job and need employment specific items like, work boots, guard cards, uniforms, etc.. The committee has a variety of businesses, trade schools, and other veteran’s services through the county or one of the hand full of veterans nonprofits. We set up job fairs, relay job listings, perform community services, and host a yearly homeless veterans’ stand down.

 

History of the Stand Down:

 

The original Stand Down for homeless veterans was modeled after the Stand Down concept used during the Vietnam War to provide a safe retreat for units returning from combat operations. At secure base camp areas, troops were able to take care of personal hygiene, get clean uniforms, enjoy warm meals, receive medical and dental care, mail and receive letters, and enjoy the camaraderie of friends in a safe environment. Stand Down afforded battle-weary soldiers the opportunity to renew their spirit, health and overall sense of well-being.

 

That is the purpose of the Stand Down for homeless veterans, and achieving those objectives requires a wide range of support services and time. The program is successful because it brings these services to one location, making them more accessible to homeless veteran
