SOLDIERS PROJECT NW OFFERS FREE COUNSELING FOR VETS/ACTIVE MILITARY & THEIR LOVES ONES
Soldiers Project NW is a 100% volunteer organization whose purpose is to provide free counseling to those who have served or are serving in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and to their families and loved ones, including LGBT active military/veterans and their loved ones. Many people choose to receive help directly from the military or the VA. Soldiers Project NW offers an alternative for those who, for whatever reason, do not or cannot utilize those benefits. Soldiers Project NW has put together a list of licensed private practice therapists from Olympia to Bellingham who are willing to see one client (or couple, or family) at no charge, for as long as they need to be seen to deal with any of the stressors that have come from being involved in combat or loving someone who has. For more information, call the Soldiers Project NW's 24-hour phone line, 206-290-1035.
