Recommended Outside Services For Warriors
The Recovery Resource Council in Fort Worth, Texas offers free and confidential counseling services to North Texas veterans through its Enduring Families and Enduring Women Veterans Services. Enduring Families is unique in that it provides counseling services not only to the veteran, but also to his or her family members, for issues that are unique to a family who has experienced deployment. Enduring Women will provide group counseling and peer navigation to women veterans experiencing various issues including, but not limited to, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, anxiety, military sexual trauma, reintegration issues, substance abuse or parenting difficulties. Veterans who are interested in the services of the Recovery Resource Council should contact Tempa Sherrill (817-332-6329 x250), the RRC Veteran Services Coordinator for more information.
We also recommend that injured service members seek additional resources through Hope For The Warriors®. Hope For The Warriors® engages the military family by providing person-centered planning, utilizing a network of programs within Hope For The Warriors® as well as programs supported by the military, government, community and other nonprofits. In North Texas, Gus Cabarcas (214-548-9297) serves as Hope For The Warriors®' Community Relations Coordinator.
Additionally, the National Resource Directory is a federal government Web site for wounded, ill and injured service members, veterans, their families, and those who support them. This website, which is maintained by the Departments of Defense, Labor and Veterans Affairs, provides access to more than 11,000 services and resources at the national and state level to support the recovery, rehabilitation and reintegration of service members and veterans into their communities.
