Great News! - New Partnership with MVCN

Military and Veteran Caregivers Network:

Nearly 6 million Americans care for wounded, ill and injured military service members and veterans of the pre- and post-9/11 eras. These “hidden heroes,” which include parents, spouses, children, extended family members, friends and battle buddies, are often overwhelmed. They face significant challenges including: scattered resources, isolation, poor health and emotional stress. The MVCN supports caregivers of all ages, eras and stages, offering peer support and access to partner organizations’ resources and services, with the goal of increasing caregivers’ connectedness, hopefulness, wellness, knowledge and skills.

If you are any kind of caregiver, you will most likely find wonderful support from the MVCN.
