Our VVA Chapter 12 “Play HOOK-e” from PTSD program is geared towards veterans struggling with PTSD & TBI but other veterans are welcome to attend our events. The goal is to connect veterans to VA Service Offices/Outreach Centers, NJ Coastal Parks, Outdoor Clubs, Veteran Organizations, and help Veteran men and women take time to heal by utilizing eco-therapy activities with other veterans.
