Peer Mentors: The brother or sister that had you back while in service, now is here at Dryhootch to provide that same support in "the world." Advise on benefits, how they made the transition back, or just a buddy that can finish the sentence for you.
Great Coffee: A great social space where veterans, their family, & the community can share conversation, offer help, and relax over a great cup of coffee, tea, or more. Try our Marine Mud, Navy Destroyer, Special Forces Bold, VA Transfusion . . . you get the hint!
|Resources: There is a wide range of services available to the veterans & family. But where to find, how to file? Ask the team at Dryhootch to show you the way.|
|Legal Help: Whether its family law, or a criminal case, good things happen to good people. And Dryhootch can provide you & your family with the help to get back to the life you had envisioned.|
|Housing Assistance. Resources are available whether you are homeless, in danger of eviction or shutoff, or can't get the security deposit together. We can point you to the right partner who can get you back on track.|
|Families: You don't have to be alone, family Peers can help you understand the help and programs you may be looking for, but not sure how to find them.|
|Addiction: Unfortunately, its all too often a reality of those who served, who have PTSD, or are a stressed family member. Dryhootch has numerous groups that can address your issues respectfully.|
|Music, Art, Writing: Time to have fun, and to heal! Great music with Guitars for Vets, actors, artists, all here to help you loosen up, have some fun, heal a little!|

Dryhootch iPeer Smartphone Veteran Peer Mentoring Research Study
The Dryhootch iPeer Project is seeking participants to test ways of using Smartphone technology to provide veteran-to-veteran peer mentor support. Many Veterans experience difficulty re-integrating with civilian or college campus life when they return from service. This program is designed to help Veterans connect with other Veterans who have experienced the same issues.
• The study is open to any Veteran with a Smartphone OR access to a computer with Internet connection
• As part of the study, you will receive 12 weeks of free peer-to-peer mentorship from a trained Veteran mentor
• You will complete some surveys at the beginning and end of the study, as well as respond to very brief questions every few days via Smartphone or computer (6 weeks will be done on paper, 6 weeks via the application)
• Participants who complete the study will receive up to $75 in gift cards depending on their level of participation
If you are interested in participating in the iPeer study, please contact Dryhootch: email@example.com or call 414-949-5838 (5VET)
