We are Advisors, Advocates, & Partners

 

Purple Star is the initial point of contact that provides Veterans with immediate support via trained peer advisors and transition tools and resources. We then partner with and refer to existing mentoring organizations and Veteran resources; acting as a bridge and advocate by referring Veterans in need of ongoing support.

Our assistance to serve fellow Veterans is not, nor is it intended to be, a substitute for professional medical advice.

Our long-term goal is to see the following areas examined and mandate that programs are implemented by the Department of Defense and Department of Veterans Affairs to ensure:

1Every service member who has served in a Combat or Combat related job specialty is provided comprehensive health, wellness and decompression resources  to address the hidden wounds of war before they leave the military.
2Every new Veteran leaves the military having completed a homecoming preparedness peer mentoring program taught by fellow Veterans.
3Every family has access to comprehensive homecoming preparedness training and resources before they welcome their Veteran home. Nationally standardized and readily available resources do not exist at present.
4Every new Veteran has a post-separation plan and follow up schedule with their local hometown VA or non-VA health care provider.
