We are members of the Texas Military Veteran Peer Network and encourage you to join at   Once you have joined, please sign up the the Central Texas Killeen Chapter and you will have access to more information regarding Peer resources available. 

YOU TALK, WE LISTEN....Our Peer to Peer Support Workshops help you to talk through issues that occur when you experience a traumatic event.  Discussing your problems with peers is proven to be more successful to your well-being than discussing it with others.  Because peers served in the military, you can identify with each other.  Many times, they have been there and done that too!
