CARING FOR A WOUNDED VETERAN IS A FULLTIME JOB
Those caring for a veteran who experiences significant injuries combined with substance use, maladaptive behavior, gambling, or abuse often causes additional financial stress and safety concerns to other family members in the home. Experiencing a veteran's abuse, addiction, or incarceration can be difficult when navigating these unspoken struggles. Without a support system to turn to who understands these complex situations, caregivers often feel hopeless, isolated, and unsure about their future. At HH6 we understand the distinct and unique variables that leave caregivers and children reeling from trauma in the home because we've been there ourselves. Our organization was built by caregivers, military spouses, and veterans who have experienced silent struggles behind the closed doors of our homes. From peer support, to tackling treatment and trauma, to advocacy efforts; we provide our warrior families with a safe place to land when all seems lost.
