We are pleased to announce that Your Washington State Department of Veterans Affairs (WDVA) has been selected as one of the awardees for two different funding grants that will increase our abilities and capabilities of Serving Those Who Served.
The two funding grants will cover PTSD and End of Life Counseling and Military Family Counseling, with funding through King County, Department of Community and Human Services, Veterans, Seniors, and Human Services Levy. The totals for these two awards are $1,890,786 for PTSD & End of Life Counseling, and $369,000 for Military Family Counseling. The award period will be effective from August 1, 2020 to December 31, 2023.
WDVA’s Mission is to Serve Those Who Served. Through funding from these grants, service members, veterans and their family members (SMVF) will have access to free, confidential, culturally competent counseling in PTSD, Military Sexual Trauma, Traumatic Brain Injury and other concerns that arise from military service.
In King County, all veterans, no matter length of service or discharge type, can be seen by a licensed, qualified and culturally competent counselor, embedded in the community and providing evidence-based practices to help individuals achieve wellness and growth.
Stay tuned for future progress updates and information on additional grants and/or awards.
