Veterans Transitional Living Program
War changes people. In some cases, the experiences are so traumatic that our servicemen and women have a hard time returning to civilian life. They tell stories of addiction, family disintegration and mental illness, including post-traumatic stress. Too often, they end up living on the streets. In April 2010, Volunteers of America North Louisiana welcomed the first 20 residents to its newest program, a 46-bed transitional facility for veterans.
