New support group offers solutions for families and friends of Veterans combating PTSD.

New support group offers solutions for families and friends of Veterans combating PTSD.

Veterans and their loved ones often face serious health challenges, such as post-traumatic stress disorder or PTSD. Experts with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs report PTSD occurs:

• In about 11-20% of Veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars (Operations Iraqi and Enduring Freedom), or in the range of 11-20 Veterans out of 100 who served in OEF/OIF.

• In as many as 10% of Gulf War (Desert Storm) Veterans, or in 10 Gulf War Veterans out of 100.

• In about 30% of Vietnam Veterans, or about 30 out of 100 Vietnam Veterans.

To confront these troubling statistics, ARVets is supporting the efforts of a new group that seeks to address the needs of family members and friends of Veterans with PTSD.

The first meeting of the support group will be on Saturday, March 21 from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in the East Room of the Central Arkansas Library System’s Main Library in downtown Little Rock. For more information on the event call 501-541-2262.

ARVets small business training cancelled, due to snow and freezing rain.

Due to impending winter weather for Wednesday and possibly Thursday of this week, ARVets has cancelled the upcoming small business development workshop at the ITT Tech campus in Little Rock on March 4th and March 5th.

We hope to reschedule this event for the end of this month. When new dates are finalized for the entrepreneurship training, ARVets will promote the event on this website and social media.

Thank you for expressing an interest in this program.

ARVets would like to thank Sarah Arnold for her service and wish her well with all future endeavors. Friday, February 27th is Sarah’s last day working with ARVets. Since September 2014, Sarah has helped our organization improve the lives of Arkansas Veterans and their families as the ARVets Outreach VISTA.

Volunteers In Service To America, or VISTA, is a national service program where people get engaged in community service and make a full-time commitment to work on a specific project at a nonprofit organization or public agency.

Throughout Sarah’s time at ARVets, she recruited community volunteers, developed partnerships with local businesses for the inaugural Love Our Heroes Luncheon, and worked on a variety of special projects that assisted military families and Veterans during the holiday season.
