Grace After Fire has started the first Texas call-in service center for Veterans and their families - Texans Helping Texans. All calls will be answered by Veterans.
This is not a crisis line but rather another way that Veterans can reach out and help each other. Help find a friend, a service provider that understands Veterans, or find a peer group meeting of Vets talking to Vets.
The www.TexansHelpingTexans.org website is made possible through the Texas Department of State Health Services' Mental Health Initiatives for Veterans and their families.
Veterans represent a special type of American, people willing to step up in times of peace and war to fight back against those who would do us harm.
As home to the second most active duty military families in the nation, Texas has a responsibility to support military families, welcome military members home when they return and ease their transition back to stateside service.
