Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs
Cal Stammer, Region 7 Veterans Outreach and Recovery Program (#VORP) coordinator and a veteran himself, recently helped a Winnebago County #Navy veteran receive medical care and residential treatment.
After living for more than three decades with symptoms of anxiety, depression, and #PTSD, the veteran struggled with strained family relationships, legal trouble, employment difficulties, and medical complications.
After working with Cal and VORP, the veteran is now living at one of WDVA's Veteran Housing and Recovery Program sites and has made significant positive progress including submitting an Intent to File for Service Connected Disability, maintaining sobriety for over 120 days, gaining full-time employment, engaging with providers whom he trusts at his local community based outpatient clinic, rebuilding relationships, and looking to the future.
This is just one of many success stories to share this month from VORP, which connects veterans to community services and provides case management and support, with a special focus on treatment and recovery.
