Serving veterans and their families

The mission of Easter Seals Veterans Case Management Program is to assist veterans and their families build the lives they want after they finish their military service.  Our case managers want to help veterans and their families meet the needs they have to foster stability, wellness, and growth.

 

Program details:

DSCN0831-for-web
  • Veterans will not be required to show 2 forms of ID, good conduct discharge, DD 214, homelessness, or substance use to be eligible.
  • To better accommodate work schedules, case management services will also be offered via phone and require limited paperwork to get started.
  • Our goal is not to duplicate services offered in the community, but rather be an easy point of entry for veterans and their families who have been reticent to or had difficulty connecting to the VA or finding the resources they need.   


Meet our Program Coordinator, Dr. Cristy Gamez-Galka:

Dr. Gamez-Galka is a licensed psychologist who has worked with Veterans for over 10 years in inpatient and outpatient settings, in groups and individually, assisting them to create the lives they want to live by using their strengths to reach their goals.

We are currently offering a veteran with a disability the opportunity to be trained with and receive a companion dog.  A companion dog can improve a veteran’s quality of life and help him or her live more independently.

 

To be eligible the veteran must:

  • Be able to participate in training.  They must have transportation and the ability to be work with the trainer.
  • Be financially capable of maintaining care after the training is over, i.e., feed the dog and take the dog to veterinarian visits.
