In 2017, Easterseals Central Texas was awareded a grant from the State of Texas to offer mental health services to veterans and their family members in Hays, Bastrop, Williamson, and Travis counties. With and through our partners we provide counseling, educational opportunities, peer support, and employment resource assistance, in their communities.
Our counseling partner is Samaritan Center offering evidence based counseling services free of cost to veterans and/or their family members (including EMDR, play therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, among others). They also offer integrative medicine and telepsychiatry on a sliding scale basis.
Our education partner is Capital IDEA. Capital IDEA provides financial support and extensive professional guidance to motivated, non-traditional students who want to earn more and move up in a great career.
We also partner with Code VI Veteran Integration to help veterans find their “tribe” - community and sense of meaning.
