The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
The Springfield Vet Centers mission is to welcome home our war veterans by providing quality readjustment services in a comfortable and safe environment.
The Vet Center provides a unique environment designed to educate and serve veterans and their families while maintaining a high regard for social, cultural and ethinic diversity.
The staff at the Springfield Vet Center is a team of caring professionals, some of whom are combat veterans and can relate to what our veterans have been through. The staff consists of a Team Leader, Readjustment Counselors, and Office Manager and Volunteers who value the diversity and experinces of the veterans we serve.
Services provided include: Individual & group counseling, family & couple counseling, alcohol & drug couseling and referral, sexual trauma & bereavement counseling, employment counseling, liaison with VA facilities, referral to community agencies and benefits assistance.
Eligibility for services is open to all war zone veterans, veterans who experienced sexual trauma while serving on active duty and family members of Armed Forces personnel who died while on active duty (bereavement services).
At the Vet Center, we take pride in dealing with veterans, NOT procedures. Vet Center services are provided at no cost to the veteran or family.
