Ecumenical Center Receives Grant to Provide Counseling for Military Members

SAN ANTONIO – The Ecumenical Center has received a grant from the Texas Veterans Commission to provide counseling services on a sliding scale to members of the military and their families.

Available to active duty military and their dependents, as well as retired veterans, this grant will provide much-needed access to counseling services. Some members of the military who return home from deployment need assistance coping with PTSD or other trauma. Children whose parents are in the military may also experience the stress of a returning or absent parent and will benefit from the service.

Historically, counseling available to our veterans maybe limited and/or have restrictions. In some cases, certain benefits are not even available to spouses or children. This grant will provide timely services to anyone who has served in the military, along with their families, and will allow the healing process to begin faster.

The program takes effect on January 1, 2014, and covers aid for individual counseling, family counseling, group therapy, play therapy, neurofeedback for traumatic brain injuries or ADHD and spousal therapy. Services are available on a first come / first served basis while funds last.

The Ecumenical Center provides high quality, faith-based counseling and education to help people find healing, growth and wellness. The Center remains committed to this goal. The grant from the Texas Veterans Commission provides the means to stand up and help families achieve their life’s mission.
