When a service member transitions out of the military, their family transitions alongside them. This transition is often marked by challenges associated with geographic relocation, career uncertainty, family reintegration, the development of a new community, and identifying needed healthcare and social supports.
With a grant from the Texas HHSC Veterans Family Alliance Program the Institute for Military and Veteran Family Wellness launched the Veteran Family Transition Program to address the transition support needs of families leaving military service. This program will allow veteran families in Texas to receive referrals to regional resources and support from trained peers who have experienced the transitional journey.
Participants in the program will benefit from a regional network of support to address their needs and goals, and be connected to vetted resources in their community to set them up for a successful transition.
