“Monroe County Veterans Affairs and the Monroe County Board of County Commissioners express our support for the VA Vet Center’s launch of in-person counseling services dedicated to our Veterans and their dependents throughout the Florida Keys,” said Monroe County Director of Veterans Affairs Cathy Crane. “Our collective goal is to establish a secure and confidential environment for them to receive the essential care and support they deserve.”

Vet Centers, part of the US Department of Veterans Affairs, were established in 1979 to counsel Vietnam-era Veterans experiencing readjustment challenges. They are community-based and support qualifying active-duty, reserve, and National Guard Veterans and their families.

“This initiative reflects the deep commitment of all partners in supporting the mental health and well-being of those who have served our nation,” said Miami Vet Center Director Irvin Flores.
