On April 12, 2019 we helped provide veteran support by collecting over 5 semi-trailers worth of donated suits, shirts, ties and mens fashion items from the community. This helps provide the veterans at Camp Hope have a professional wardrobe for civilian employment here in Houston. Thank you to Michael Berry for hosting this amazing event.

The Mission of the PTSD Foundation of America is to bring hope and healing to Combat Veterans and their families suffering from the effects of combat-related Post Traumatic Stress.
We also raise awareness of the increasing needs of the military community through public events, media outlets, social media, service organizations, and churches. Finally, we network with government agencies, service organizations, churches, and private sector businesses into a united "Corps of Compassion" to bring their combined resources together to meet the needs of the military community on a personal and individual/family level.
Camp Hope - Camp Hope is an interim and transitional housing facility for Combat Veterans with PTSD and their families. The Camp Hope facility opened in 2012 and is in a quiet and safe setting in Houston, Texas. Veterans and their immediate family members can find healing, help, and hope through intensive peer support and mentoring program for those who suffer combat-related post-traumatic stress. For more information go to WWW.PTSDUSA.ORG
Warrior Groups - The PTSD Foundation of America employs trained Veteran mentors to create and facilitate combat trauma support groups, known as "Warrior Groups." The Warrior Group is for combat Veterans who share their experiences, compassion, faith, and hope in overcoming the invisible wounds of war. To find a group or for more information go to WWW.PTSDUSA.ORG
Family Groups - The Foundation also employs Family Coordinators to facilitate Family Support Groups. Participants in these groups are the spouses and families of Combat Veterans. The participants receive copies of When the War Comes Home, the companion workbook to the Combat Trauma Healing Manual, and are assisting in working the curriculum by certified mentors and peer coaches. To find a group of for more information go to WWW.PTSDUSA.ORG
Peer Coaching & Mentoring - The Foundation employs Certified Peer Coaches and Mentors that do outreach in the community to locate and support struggling Combat Veterans. These mentors are all Combat Veterans who have successfully managed their own PTSD and now teach others how to manage it themselves. The Mentors work with Veterans Treatment Courts, hospitals, jails, and medical institutions to share a message of hope and healing to the Veteran community.
Professional Counseling - As an organization, we are intuitive to the fact that not all needs can be met sufficiently by peer support alone. Therefore, we have sought out the assistance of professional counselors to meet the more complex needs of the veterans. Professional Counselors conduct this counseling at the Refuge Trauma & Counseling Center in Conroe, TX. This counseling center specializes in the treatment of Veterans and their Families.
