Center Point is committed to serving our Veterans in their reintegration to society with respect and honor. Over 2 million American men and women have served in Iraq and Afghanistan since 2001. As they return home, many with the invisible wounds of PTSD and MST, they also face the tremendous challenges and barriers presented by unemployment, poverty and homelessness. Our project will help ameliorate the stress and stigma our heroes face by providing financial assistance to Veterans in need.

Veterans returning from combat face many challenges and barriers to successfully reintegrating with civilian life. Finding jobs, stable housing and family responsabilities can be overwhelming when coping with the invisible wounds of war.Many Americans are unaware of the prolonged struggle our Veterans in the battle of reintegration. Military service is difficult, demanding and dangerous. Successfully returning to civilian life, however, poses additional challenges which require assistance.


Texas Center Point Veterans Program currently offers mental health and trauma counseling, comprehensive case management, housing assistance, vocational preparation and employment placement. A Heroes Helping Hand will offer Veterans a further measure of stability and will provide additional reintegration support through directed financial assistance including but not limited to basic needs, work-related clothing, initial security deposit and rental subsidies, and payments for emergency utilities.

Long-Term Impact

We will ease the reintegration struggles of 30 Veterans and their families in Austin and we will leverage resources, expand Center Point programming and offer financial assistance to Veterans to address emergent needs for food, shelter, and basic survival. The long term impact of transtioning a Veteran from military to civilian employment and from homelessness to stable housing is immeasurable. We believe that stability in critical life domains is the precusor to all other accomplishments.
