Peer Support is the basis for everything we do at Dryhootch. The brothers and sisters that had your back while in service are now here at Dryhootch, providing you with that same support in "the real world." They can give advice on benefits, explain how they made the transition back, or just be a buddy that can finish your sentences. It is behind everything we do here.
Readjustment Returning from Combat: Its normal to feel confused, depressed, alone when returning “home”. Our veterans peer, who have been in your boots, can show you how to adjust to a place you've been away from for awhile.
Resources: There is a wide range of services available to veterans and their family. But where to find them; how to file? Ask the team at Dryhootch to show you the way. We partner with a large range of agencies who have great programs. Ask us to hook you up.
Employment: We don't throw a computer at you and leave you on your own. We work with you alongside our peer vet to build your resume & skill sets. And we team up to find the employer and career you desire.
Legal Help: Whether it's family, law, or a criminal case, bad things happen to good people. Dryhootch can provide you and your family with help in getting back the life you envisioned.
Families: You don't have to be alone. Family peers can help you find and understand the programs you may be looking for.
Addiction: Unfortunately, addiction is all too often a reality for those who served, have PTSD, or are a stressed family member. Dryhootch has numerous groups that can address your issues respectfully.
Music, Art, Writing: Dryhootch brings in actors, artists, and great music with instructions on guitar or banjo to help you loosen up, have some fun, and heal a little!
And Great Coffee: Dryhootch provides a great social space where veterans, their family, and the community can gather to share conversation, offer help, and relax over a great cup of coffee, tea, and more. Try our Marine Mud, Navy Destroyer, Special Forces Bold, VA Transfusion...you get the hint!
Began by veterans and family members to insure our military veterans and their families who survived the war; survive the peace. . .
