David Maulsby, Executive Director, made a compelling presentation at our April 12, 2018 Club Meeting regarding Camp Hope. Camp Hope provides counseling and interim housing for our Wounded Warriors, Veterans and their families suffering from combat related PTSD. The facility opened in 2012 and is located in a quiet and safe setting in Houston, Texas whereby veterans and their immediate family members can find healing, help and hope while benefiting from an intensive peer support and mentoring program for Posttraumatic Stress. In addition to temporary housing, Camp Hope offers a 90+ day PTSD recovery program. Cape Hope is located at 9724 Derrington Rd, Houston Texas. They are always seeking volunteers to help. Please visit their web site to learn more David can be reached at 713-248-6205 or David.Maulsby@ptsdUSA,org.
Camp Hope’s PTSD recovery program provides residents the opportunity to attend group lessons and support sessions with other combat veterans; conduct individual mentoring sessions with certified combat trauma mentors; participate in off-site small group interaction activities (fishing, hiking, local activities and events); and get involved with local churches, businesses and volunteer organizations to assist in their personal healing and educating the community on the invisible wounds of war.
The Camp Hope staff is a unique team of combat veterans and civilian pastoral staff trained in working with victims of trauma and post-traumatic stress. They understand that those who have served this nation continue to struggle with the invisible wounds of combat and are working to assist our troops in putting the pieces of their lives back together. The Camp Hope staff uses the necessary traditional counseling tools and incorporates a faith based approach to help combat the effects of Post Traumatic Stress. In addition, the staff assists veterans with a myriad of issues including job placement, coordination with the Department of Veteran’s Affairs and reputable veteran service organizations to assist with claims and benefits, transportation to appointments and peer support groups integration. The Camp Hope community embraces our troops, veterans and their families as they seek the rewarding and fulfilling lives they so richly deserve.
Cape Hope is continuing to expand however, resident rooms at Camp Hope are currently limited and assigned based on first come first serve and need. Contact us on our PTSD Veteran Line at 877-717-PTSD (7873) for more information, acceptance criteria and availability.
