PURPLE STAR VETERANS & FAMILIES (PSVF)

Purple Star Veterans and Families (PSVF) is a 501c3 community service organization. We are dedicated to strengthening the transition safety net for Veterans, their immediate and extended families and for the families of Veterans who are not surviving homecoming due to suicide, accidents during re-integration, and drug and alcohol addiction. Our focus is on creating an atmosphere of support and advocacy, providing immediate access to transition assistance tools and resources, fostering community building and collaboration, and acting as a gathering place for purple star Veterans and families.

Our 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:

 

Every new Veteran leaves the military having completed a homecoming preparedness peer mentoring program taught by fellow Veterans

Every 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.

Every new Veteran has a post-separation plan and follow up schedule with their local hometown VA or non-VA health care provider.

Every 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.
