Operation Strides helps veterans heal after trauma in the Service.

NTRC’s Operation Strides is an Equine-Facilitated Therapeutic Horsemanship program with a curriculum geared toward adult veterans from the Afghanistan/Iraq/Gulf Wars suffering from PTSD, TBI and amputation.  Therapeutic Horsemanship, which is increasingly being used to treat war veterans suffering from PTSD, incorporates horses experientially for emotional growth and learning.  Therapeutic Horsemanship is a collaborative effort between an equine specialist working with participants and horses to address treatment goals.  During a Therapeutic Horsemanship session, the participants learn about themselves and others while participating in activities with horses, and then processing (or discussing) feelings, behaviors and patterns.

Dial A Nurse is a Home Health Care Company based in Naples.  Their services can be billed to the V.A. health care system.

Many members of the Veterans Council rely healvily on the Veterans Administration for their health care.  The help of an at-home nurse or companion can drastically improve your mental and physical well-being.  Be sure to ask your primary care physician for a referral to receive at-home health care from an authorized V.A. vendor such as Dial A Nurse in order to make the V.A. cover the nurse's fees.

The Veterans Council of Collier County is the umbrella organization of the 20 veterans groups that exist in Collier County, Florida.
 

The Veterans Council is comprised of representatives from each group and meets the 3rd Thursday of each month.

 

We bring all groups together for networking and fellowship in an otherwise fragmented community.  We each have our allegiances, but are fighting the same battle.  United we stand.

Meetings are open to all veterans.
