MVPN - Killeen

Bring Everyone In The Zone, Inc., is a 501(c)3 non-profit that helps Service Members, Veterans and their Families.  Our program covers three main areas, Preparing, Caring and Sharing (PCS).  The members of our Board of Directors have served in the military since the Viet Nam era and forward.  They are dedicated to helping their fellows to get back "IN THE ZONE".

Our volunteers are professionals who give their time and talent to help serve those who have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, Traumatic Brain Injury, Sexual Assault and other traumatic events in their lives.  We also have trained Veterans Service Officers who can help you.  We offer a variety of assistance on a case by case basis.  We want to be your "travel companion" and help you get to where you need to be. Our Peer to Peer Support Workshops help you to talk through issues that occur when you experience a traumatic (wartime) event.  Discussing your problems with peers is proven to be more successful to your well-being than discussing it with others.  Because peers served in the military, you can identify with each other.  Many times, they have been there and done that too!
