Goal is to provide easy access to skilled professionals to military members and their families.

Whether it is a young military wife who is anxious because her four-year-old has had nightmares since her husband's deployment or a father who is struggling to cope with his son's loss of a leg as a result of an explosion in Iraq, both will receive the assistance they need to move through their experience. The healthier the support system for our troops, the lower the risk of severe or prolonged dysfunction within these military families. Connect with a Give an Hour provider through their website:
