Military Women and Veterans in Crisis
Caring for women utilizing the same domestic violence and sexual assault support services that are part of the WCA foundational work. A military veteran and certified Sexual Assault Prevention Responder assists in meeting the needs of this population. Crisis counseling is available and provided by a woman veteran who is on staff. Services include a community education piece and a Wellness Recovery Action Plan.
Women and Veterans Dealing with Military Sexual Trauma
Focusing on connecting clients to community support services specific to Military Sexual Trauma (MST) such as the VA Healthcare system, community area SARCs and SAPRs and other community services as appropriate. Assistance is directed by a Peer Support Specialist. Again, services are facilitated through the utilization of our core domestic violence and sexual assault programming combined with peer support groups and advocacy. This assistance also includes community education, training and outreach information.
Women Veterans Transitioning
Connecting women and families who are not necessarily in crisis due to domestic violence and sexual assault situations, but may still be struggling with the transition from military to civilian life. Assistance is directed by a veteran case manager. Veterans are connected to community support services (VA and State, Local and Federal), support groups, career and housing support, self-sufficiency services and advocacy. Again, community education, training and outreach services are provided.
