The Cigna Foundation awarded a $100,000 grant to Veterans Recovery Resources, a community-based, non-profit organization that offers professional clinical care and peer-based wellness programs to military service members, veterans, families, caregivers, and survivors in southwest Alabama and surrounding areas. The Cigna Foundation grant will fund additional peer support specialists, who provide collaborative care beyond clinical services to fellow veterans on their recovery journey. The peer support specialists, who are veterans themselves, are uniquely equipped to offer practical skills, knowledge, and assistance as well as empathy and hope.
Veterans Recovery Resources is a “by Veteran, for Veteran” non-profit, community-based wellness program dedicated to supporting a life for those who have served. Founded in 2015, the organization’s mission is to accelerate veteran well-being by removing the barriers to mental health care and providing a recovery program for veterans, families, caregivers, and survivors experiencing post-traumatic stress, addiction and other wellness issues.
