Clear Path for Veterans: Supporting the Journey Home

| Updated March 26, 2018

Recognizing the responsibility of communities to help those who serve

Clear Path for Veterans is a nonprofit that helps men and women leaving the military transition from a structured, predictable environment into civilian life. Clear Path provides support, resources and programs designed to meet a variety of veteran needs.

From their website: "While many nonprofits serving veterans focus on a single issue or need, Clear Path’s model is diverse and all-inclusive. Although PTSD, MST, traumatic brain injuries and other physical injuries from military service are a reality of war, we help work through those challenges and build upon the resiliency of these men and women which goes beyond their disability.

Each program, service and referral takes into account the continual desire to serve and incorporates giving back in some capacity. We are firm believers that anyone who has worn the uniform holds a special place within their community. To ensure others answer the call to service, we continue educating the broader community on military and warrior culture and help prepare ourselves to accept the responsibility of welcoming them home. Clear Path is our community’s example of showing we care, no matter how long it takes."
