There is no more Honorable, Worthy, or Needed Cause!

As members of the American Legion, we searched the area to find an organization that is effective in helping veterans who are suffering from PTSD, and found none.
Veterans who have honorably served our country are returning home with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), only to find that there isn’t a service to assist them available. A 2010 VA study states that 22 veterans commit suicide each day. We have declared THAT’s ENOUGH!
The “Veterans Cause” was created to provide theater specific, (i.e. Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam), for veterans in need in Dauphin, Cumberland, Perry, and northern York Counties in South Central Pennsylvania. Group sessions are rotated throughout the region on a regular basis to give all interested veterans access to this needed service. The Legions and other veterans organizations have quickly come on board providing rooms for counseling and other accommodations.
All donations are put toward counselor training, group counseling, individual counseling, awareness. All donations are invested locally.
We need your help to finance the counseling, and awareness so these Wounded Warriors can get the help they need anytime they need it. Our goal is to have a group session available, theater specific every week. Individual counseling will be conducted as the counselor and veteran agree.
Thank you in advance for your support.
