Event Description

As a member of clergy, you and your place of worship are an important contact point for Veterans in your community. Sometimes clergy members aren’t aware of the Veterans in their congregation or how they might help them and their family following deployment.

You may recognize Veterans who are struggling in their return to civilian life, but not know how to offer support.

Veterans and their families

  • The importance of communities for reintegration
  • Congregation as community for reintegration and community
