The tragedy of homelessness affects Veterans and civilians alike. But the causes for it are often different, as is their recovery rate. That’s why VLCNC-Cares wants to provide a Veteran-specific setting with the full-spectrum of resources under one roof, while also offering a Veteran-to-Veteran connection that other programs cannot.
VLCNC-Cares, which is Veteran-founded and Veteran-run, is the only statewide, therapeutic residential setting for Veterans. With a strong emphasis on personal responsibility and achievement of individualized goals, the program will provide a rehabilitation-focused residential setting for Veterans recovering from chronic mental illness, combat stress, chemical dependency and homelessness.
The Veterans Life Center Campus, a 150-bed facility, is located on the John Umstead Hospital Complex in Butner,NC. The R.J. Blackley Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment Center (ADATC) will also be located on campus and will develop and provide an evidence-based, best-practices model of Veteran specific Behavioral Health services.
We cannot do it alone. We need your help!
