Veteran Outreach Channels

Veterans are faced with challenges everyday following their service. Sometimes veterans need help finding programs to assist them in their everyday lives. From healthcare, benefits, or special veteran programs, we’ve worked diligently to ensure you can access those resources through our website. If you have hit a wall or in need of any assistance, chances are we have been there before. We are always available to any vet facing issues. Our peer-to-peer confidential assistance is very important to us and we hope you feel welcome to seek our guidance.  We have listed some known programs that we recommend to get you started. If you do not see something that assists you, please contact us and we will go over all the resources that we’ve used in the past order to meet the needs we have as vets.

 

Peer-to-peer Counseling

Some of these needs are met through physical and mental health facilities, but the most unmet need is that of veteran fellowship. We are a unique community and often just desire to have the opportunity to sit down and speak with someone that we can relate to. The Husky Veterans Association will provide an opportunity for veterans to gather in our Veteran Service Center on campus and hang out with their peers. In addition, members will provide confidential peer-to-peer counseling.

If you are unable to contact anyone within the HVA group, or would like to speak to someone more anonymously. Please contact the VA Crisis Hotline. If it is an emergency, please call 911.
