Statewide Advocacy for Veterans' Empowerment Advocate for veterans who are not able to obtain the benefits they have earned due to institutional or personal barriers. The program's primary mission is prevention of suicide and mental health distress through the identification of issues facing veterans when they return from service and proactively providing them with access to benefits and services that may address these issues and result in positive transitions back to civilian life.

SAVE acts as a liaison between veterans and their families and the various agencies within the federal and state governments.

Health Assistance

The goal of the Mesothelioma Veterans Center is to reach veterans and their families who have been affected by mesothelioma and connect them to their website (sponsored by attorneys Bullock Campbell Bullock & Harris P.C., Houston, Texas) which offers free veteran specific resources and support. 1/3 of all mesothelioma patients are veterans.  Since 2004 over 5,000 veterans have died from mesothelioma. The reason this cancer targets so many veterans is because of the prevalence of asbestos use in the military in the past. A large part of our mission is to help spread awareness to veterans and their families.
