Articles & Fact Sheets


  • Families At Ease: VA Program Helps Families Help Their Veterans: Many Veterans need help admitting or realizing they need help. The 'Families At Ease' program (now 'Coaching Into Care') was developed by VA to work with family members and friends of Veterans to help them access VA facilities for services and benefits they have earned.
  • Helping Veterans Come Home: A Day at a Vet Center: Vet Centers understand and appreciate Veteran's war experience while assisting them and their family members toward a successful post-war adjustment in their community. Join Alice Ford and the staff at the Alexandria Vet Center for a look at what happens everyday.
  • A Day at a Vet Center: A Safe Place to Talk: The goal of the Vet Center program is to provide a broad range of counseling, outreach, and referral services to eligible Veterans in order to help them make a satisfying post-war readjustment to civilian life. Vet Centers also provide bereavement counseling to surviving parents, spouses, children and siblings.
  • A Day at a Vet Center: Counseling Vets and Families: There are 232 community based Vet Centers located in all fifty states, District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the US Virgin Islands. While the Vet Centers were originally set up to help returning Vietnam Veterans, they are now able to counsel all combat Veterans from all military conflicts.
