Veterans Recovery Resources owns two buildings on a three-acre parcel of land in mid-town Mobile, Alabama which will serve as the permanent campus for the non-profit’s unique recovery program for Veterans and their families suffering from substance abuse, post-traumatic stress and other mental health issues.
The Outpatient Clinic & Administration Building is located at 1156 Springhill Avenue and is now open from 8:00AM – 6:00PM from Monday to Friday. Services presently include primary medical care, individual, group and family therapy and counseling, physical and occupational therapy, and peer support. Recipients of services are also invited to join with other Veterans in outdoor recreational activities and opportunities to serve the Mobile community.
Veterans Recovery Resources is currently raising the funds necessary to remodel and open the larger of the two buildings on the campus, which will house its residential care program.
The vision of Veterans Recovery Resources is to create a vibrant community of healthy Veterans and their families who support each other over a lifetime, strengthening the local community and contributing to the city’s economic development. By purchasing these blighted buildings in need of complete repair, the organization is doing its part to contribute to the revitalization of the city.
In addition, the acquisition will create new professional jobs and training opportunities for students across many health disciplines including psychology, physical therapy, occupational therapy, medicine, social work and more. Most importantly, Veterans Recovery Resources will fill the major gap in residential treatment programs for Veterans offered on the Gulf Coast.
Veterans Recovery Resources is working closely with all other Veteran resources in the area, including the new Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic that is under construction at Tillman’s Corner. Our residential care program will serve as a strong complement to the Veterans Affairs outpatient services. The volume of Veterans needing services is too great for any one organization to serve alone. By contributing to an eco-system of service providers and collaborating with all public and private Veteran organizations, we will bring innovation to solving problems and achieve our goal of creating a vibrant community of healthy Veterans who work together, contribute to the local market and support each other over a lifetime.
Naming opportunities are available for donors wishing to make a positive and lasting impact on the city. Organizations interested in supporting Veterans Recovery Resources in this effort including providing in-kind support or services should contact the non-profit at email@example.com.
