Easter Seals TriState's mission is helping people with disabilities and disadvantages to more fully live, learn, work and play within our communities. For veterans, that often hinges upon their ability to access their benefits ... which often proves to be a challenge in itself.
The fact is, veterans can benefit from a wide range of government resources, and a growing number of private and non-profit organizations are anxious to give-back to veterans in recognition of their service. A number of community organizations have developed programs to assist veterans with needs not addressed by their government benefits.
Ironically, though, many veterans are “falling through the cracks." They are either not aware of their full range of benefits and choices, or they don’t know how to access them. Plus, veterans often have difficulty asking for help, especially in their personal lives; as young service members, they were taught to take pride in self-sufficiency and to value resourcefulness.
The Community OneSource bridges that disconnect by connecting veterans with contacts at the organizations that will meet their needs. Easter Seals TriState has brought together a number of local organizations with veterans services to help our local veterans successfully navigate the resources available to them.
