“Prior to coming, I’d been coping with PTSD from a 1 year tour/4 year active duty service MST and a recent abusive relationship. I was struggling so much socially that the only outside contact I had were acquaintances I worked with at church and the kids I taught in Sunday School.
Since working on the kits from Help Heal Veterans (Heal Vets), I have personally gained self-esteem, independence and a better sense of productivity and community. Heal Vets has helped me develop my creative side. I’ve made a few friends along the way as well!”
