Strengthening military families

Free, confidential and caring professional support is available for Veterans and their families.

The LSS C.O.R.E. Program (Case Management, Outreach, Referral & Education) is offered statewide. Clients receive an individualized plan of action to access a broad range of wellness services: 


For individuals:

Build on your own strengths to deal with situations of all kinds: anger and stress management, feelings of guilt, sadness or depression, fear or anxiety, intimacy issues, trauma, integration, addictions, financial counseling, and more.

For couples:

Therapy and support for couples dealing with stress, anxiety, intimacy, or communication issues within their unique relationship.

For children:

Specialized “strength-based” counseling and support including play therapy, to help children, parents and caregivers identify and improve the child's or adolescent's well-being.

For families:

Deployment and reintegration support for Veterans, debt management, family counseling, and more.


Services are free and confidential.
We strive to remove all barriers to help you receive the support you need. If necessary, we can take care of co–pays and deductibles. If your situation is complex or your access to service locations is limited, we can come to you or provide in–home care.

You're not alone, call today.
