Community Clergy Training

Recognizing the Challenges of Reintegration and Building a Pathway to Care and Resources
July 18, 19, & 20

Rural and smaller-town Veterans in particular have limited choices for healthcare. As a member of the clergy, you and your house of worship are an important contact point for Veterans in your community. Sometimes clergy members aren’t aware of the Veterans in their congregation or how they might help a Veteran and their family. To learn how, join us for one of the following trainings:
