West Texas Counseling & Guidance
Evidence-Based Care and Hunger Relief for Uninsured Veterans
The two main offices of West Texas Counseling & Guidance (WTCG) are located near areas specifically cited in BWF’s research paper, “Veterans and COVID-19: Projecting the Economic, Social, and Mental Health Needs of America’s Veterans,” as facing significant economic impact due to the pandemic. The continued economic impact of COVID-19, coupled with new and ongoing mental health needs, have increased the need for resources such as hunger relief and quality mental health care. With this BWF grant, West Texas Counseling and Guidance will provide evidence-based mental therapy, case management, and grocery gift cards. This program will improve mental health outcomes and address hunger for 225 military/veteran households while also working towards establishing food security.
