Strength in Support
Strength in Support's founding board members have served veterans and their families in Southern California for decades through their private clinical practices and informal mentoring. In the last few years, as they saw how military funding did not meet the needs of the simultaneous wars over the past decades and how lack of funding impacted veterans services available and wait-times and reduced advocacy for military families, they knew something needed to change. Thus a small group of passionate people, including veterans, military family members, therapists, and businesspeople formed SIS.
They believe that through a combination of individualized clinical treatment, mentoring, and education they can help veterans progress toward healing and re-engagement in community life. Their staff and volunteers acknowledge and understand the sacrifices these families make, and are passionate about doing whatever possible to meet their needs.
