Mission: The Coming Home Project is a non-profit organization devoted to providing compassionate expert care, support, education, and stress management tools for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, service members, their families, and their service providers. We are a multidisciplinary, experienced team of psychotherapists, veterans and interfaith leaders committed to helping transform the wounds of war. Our programs address the psychological, emotional, spiritual and relationship challenges experienced during all stages of deployment, especially reintegration. We help rebuild the connectivity of mind, body, heart and spirit that combat trauma can unravel, renew relationships with loved ones, and create new support networks. We build a safe place – a community -- for families, their veterans and service members, and their service providers to come together and share their stories, struggles and accomplishments. We connect families with their communities as we collaborate to create integrative continuums of care. Single veterans and service members as well as those with physical injuries are also most welcome.
I've been on the Coming Home Project Board since it was founded and am proud to be associated an organization that shows such compassion for and commitment to vets and families. The community building that takes place at the retreats and events does more than fill the gap left by agencies who are too understaffed and overloaded to help. Our vets have given so much, they deserve more than lip service and artifically quick fixes. They deserve to learn how to cope with what they've seen and how to return home and reintegrate with their families. I was not surprised to hear that the DCoE (Defense Centers of Excellence) said that CHP meets or exceeds their recommendations. Our vets keep coming home and we need to support programs like CHP now more than ever.
