Welcome Home Vets contracts with local psychotherapists who are experienced in military culture and in treating combat-related trauma to provide individual, group, couples and family therapy to veterans and their families at no cost. We also provide help to veterans who are navigating the benefits claim process with the VA, and we refer to other local agencies for help with housing, shelter, and other basic needs.

About Us

Welcome Home Vets was established in Grass Valley, California in 2009 in response to the need for veterans living with post traumatic stress and other combat-related psychological conditions to receive treatment with their therapists locally rather than travel to see mental health professionals at a United States Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) facility in Auburn, Sacramento, or Reno.

Welcome Home Vets is a small local non-profit that exists due to the generosity of its donors and its volunteers.  If you are able to support our work with a donation, however small (or large!), please click the button below to donate via PayPal.

All contributions are tax-deductible, and will be acknowledged with a letter for your records.
