ABOUT US

Bridging the Gap for Veterans and Their Family

The Veteran Resource and Enrichment Center (VREC) is a new 501(c)(3) which provides a unique experience to Veterans and their family, by offering kind-hearted advocacy transition management to enhance their well-being. Feelings of well-being are fundamental to the overall health of an individual, enabling them to successfully overcome difficulties and achieve what they want out of life. Past experiences, attitudes and outlook can all impact well-being as can physical or emotional trauma following specific incidents.

 
Anyone can give a person a list of resources, however, VREC is the soft handshake and is Bridging the Gap for Veterans and their family when other programs aren’t available. We will walk the path with the Veteran, as needed, through transition management to build self-esteem, confidence, reduce anxiety, and empower Veterans to enhance their lifestyle and assist in recovery to feel good about themselves and enhance their lifestyle.
