I know a veteran who is homeless and has given up on getting help from the VA. Do you have any suggestions on how she can get help? She has kids too.
Most definitely. We can assist her through The Foundation for Global Literacy. Go to www.thefoundationforgloballiteracy.org or call 313.204.6266 for immediate assistance.
I’m trying to find out the status of my benefits. No one at the VA will tell me what is going on. I’m frustrated with the system and don’t know what to do. What do you suggest?
You can always learn the status of your benefits request at Veterans:ebenefits. Go to www.ebenefits.va.gov. Or, call 800.827.1000. Our team of case managers can assist you and/or your designee with accessing the VA and finding the information and contact person that will help with securing progress on your case.
I’m a veteran who often thinks that it would be best for everyone if I just wasn’t here. I want the noise in my head to stop. I don’t want to leave my family with that legacy…
Thank you for reaching out to us. We understand. Call us. Kim, DeMarco’s mother will personally assist you by connecting you with one of our counselors who will most help you with your situation. That counselor will be a veteran or a counselor who has extensive experience with counseling veterans who struggle with suicidal ideation and other challenges. We will make sure you are connected to a veteran comrade who will walk with you through your healing process. For immediate assistance contact the National Suicide Prevention hotline at 1.800.273.8255.
