Mary Tamposi: When our vets suffer in crisis, so does the family
Too many come back with physical and invisible wounds and impairments that affect their lives and those of their loved ones.
Fortunately, there are resources and programs available to veterans to identify, treat and support these and other conditions, through the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and a number of agencies on the federal, state and local levels.
We have all experienced the safety speech from the flight attendant, who has instructed us to place the facemask over our face first, and then assist our children. We cannot effectively help those around us who are suffering, if we ourselves are not equipped mentally and physically to do so.
Harbor Homes Inc., a statewide agency that provides housing and supportive services to homeless and at-risk veterans and their families, as well as non-veterans and their families, offers free counseling and case management through the Greater Nashua Services in Supportive Housing Project.
Mary Tamposi is director of development for Harbor Homes.
