Through our mental health initiatives, WHC is able to help fund mental health care for Veterans in need at the David Lawrence Center. Thus far, we have assisted 29 Veterans without VA eligibility or health insurance and counting.
WHC has also implemented a full-time dedicated Case Manager in conjunction with David Lawrence Center with 16-18 veterans and their families served each week. This program was funded by a grant from the Collier Community Foundation.
Additionally, the Veteran Care Action Network (VCAN), a multi-agency local team made up of key people dedicated to providing emergency solutions for Veteran care on a case- by-case basis, now exists in our community thanks to WHC efforts, as well as collaborating local organizations, such as the David Lawrence Center.
