The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) is a veteran-staffed drop-in facility that provides veterans, family members and surviving spouses with the opportunity to make their lives better.
We partner with local organizations who help military veterans and family members, including Socks for Soldiers, VetStar, Texas Workforce Solutions, West Texas Legal Aid, Texas Panhandle Centers, Panhandle Honor Flight, the Amarillo VA and many others.
We help each other by finding hope, healing and new purpose after enduring hardship through service to our nation or other obstacles they have faced.
We help through connections with peers, housing and employment, benefit eligibility, help with PTSD, anxiety, depression, and traumatic brain injury.
We identify and address the needs of Veterans, family members, and surviving spouses, and making connections to the resources they need such as:
Assistance for homeless and at-risk Veterans
Employment application assistance
Individual, family and marital counseling
Life skills training
Networking with local, area and statewide services for claims, compensation and
Peer support groups
Referrals to local Veteran-friendly agencies
*For Benefits Assistance
VRC Navigators assist Veterans and family members with any
questions or concerns in filling out the required forms for VA benefits. If further
assistance is required, Navigators will refer the individuals or family to the
appropriate Veterans Service Officer (VSO) or VA representative.
Is your organization or group looking for a speaker for a small group or even a large group? Give Shyla a call and she would be more than happy to speak or have one of the Veteran Navigators speak to your group about the great work the VRC does for our community's veterans.
