Community Engagement

josh and lori- community engagement

Quite simply, it’s fun to be together with other Veterans and families doing good in the community or simply enjoying a wide range of recreational, artistic, and social activities in small groups or large.

Sometimes being back in large groups isn’t easy for those who have served, especially if you are feeling hyper-vigilant. But it’s still important and healthy to take steps to connect and that can be as simple as going fishing, working out at the pool or a yoga class, sharing meals, engaging in some creative arts, gardening, park clean-up or coaching youth in sports.

We also get together in groups to engage in healthy recreation like biking, running, walking or concerts and festivals, to avoid becoming isolated at home and to reconnect with others who get you. This is equally important for our caregivers and survivors.

The vision of Veterans Recovery Resources is to create a vibrant community of Veterans and their families who support each other over a lifetime—including engaging in the community and contributing to the economy.

Veterans have one of the highest rates of volunteerism across the country.

Those of us who have been there, find that committing to a new mission and a new sense of purpose has worked. You can be who you want to become. You still are a warrior.

Other ways we serve you.
