Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom veterans are returning from a combat zone with visible wounds and permanent disabilities. Veterans and their families face many challenges during the reintegration process. Frequently, they are unaware of or are limited in quality supportive services, particularly in the Latino, Black, and Asian populations. Within Los Angeles County, there are few Veteran care services and even fewer programs designed to meet the needs of monolingual and culturally diverse populations.
The purpose of this project was to write a grant to fund a program that would educate culturally diverse Veterans and families through outreach by providing access to support systems, resources, and training seminars in the Los Angeles area. The goal of the Outreach Program is to improve the well-being of veterans and families, and decrease the stigma associated with treatment and use of services. The selected funding source was the ASMBA (Armed Services Mutual Benefit Association) Support Teach Assist Recognize Foundation.
