we’re here for your healing

OUR military personnel, veterans, & first responders

 do so much to help protect us.

we’re here to help our heroes who’ve helped us.

Veterans, ACTIVE DUTY & Families.

Because of the structure of the military and our society as it is right now, there are not many widely accessible resources or outlets for military veterans and their families. Yet returning to civilian life after deportment and the stressful or traumatic experiences associated with combat experiences and military culture can prove a tough transition — and that’s natural. Many veterans suffer from a mental health issue such as PTSD due to their military experiences which can make readjusting to civilian life a challenge for both veterans and their families.

Active duty Military personnel and their families may have difficult periods of transition in their military career. The changing and unknowable factors of living a military life can cause stress, worry, and anxiety as well as other more severe mental health issues. Many military personnel and their family members may feel like they can’t voice their struggles because it may put their career at risk. However, at the VFR Homefront we can help guide you and your family through whatever struggles you may be experienced in complete confidence.

We can provide the help you and your family may need in adjusting to deployment and military life and culture, as well as readjusting to civilian life after deployment. VFR therapists are here to help guide you through the transition and healing process.

First Responders.

The everyday heroes who keep us all safe — the firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians, surgery and trauma specialists, and all the others — work in highly stressful, dangerous, traumatic, and even tragic situations as a part of their daily jobs.

When it’s your job to help others, it can sometimes be difficult to admit that you may need help yourself.

VFR therapists are here to help you separate yourself from those traumatic events and break free from their draining effects so you can give your best self to your job again after experiencing a traumatic event. We can help also address any symptoms of traumatic stress or PTSD you may be experiencing.

K9 | Military & Police

 Law enforcement dogs provide our communities and our families with unmatched protection from criminals and terrorists. With their incredible sense of smell, these dogs are the most effective method we have to detect explosives, guns or nuclear material being smuggled into the US by terrorists. These dogs can catch arsonists, find illegal drugs, have detected tons of illegal drugs and dangerous agricultural products from being smuggled across our borders. These dogs also apprehend thousand of criminals every year and guard sensitive government buildings.

K9 units serve selflessly side-by-side with officers, rescuers, and partners, often overlooked by the communities they serve as well as the agencies and organizations that employ them. No human counterpart goes home with their partner, becomes part of the family, or is expected to give up their life for their partner, but K9s do this daily, often without any more recognition than any other fixed asset.
