Veterans Get Assistance from the Salvation Army

By David Leonard

The Salvation Army Social Services Department of Los Angeles County is proud to announce it will be expanding services to Iraq and Afghanistan War Veterans through a new program entitled The Liberty Program. The Salvation Army recently received a $1.3 million grant to provide mental health services to American military personnel and or their families who have unmet needs as a result of their service in war-torn Iraq or Afghanistan.

The Liberty Program will be offered through four of The Salvation Army’s existing program sites; Bell Shelter, Harbor Light, The Haven, and Westwood Transitional Center. Veterans and their families will be able to access individual and group psychotherapy, drug/alcohol recovery, mental health services, employment preparations, placement services, and assistance in obtaining benefits and permanent housing placement.

     

The need is great as the numbers of returning veterans from these two theaters of war increases. VA hospitals are being taxed to their limits and the cold hard facts remain that many of our men and women who served in uniform are not receiving much needed social services.

The services provided by The Liberty Program of The Salvation Army will be the means by which, we, who were served so well by these patriotic men and women can return the favor. If you, or someone you know is in need and could benefit from The Liberty Program, please feel free to contact David Leonard with The Salvation Army at (213) 438-1611 or e-mail at [email protected]
