Give an Hour is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization dedicated to providing free and confidential mental health services to service members, veterans, and their loved ones. Over the past ten years, our nationwide network of approximately 7,000 volunteer providers have donated nearly 120,000 hours of free counseling and consulting services to individuals, couples and families, children and adolescents, and other organizations.
Give an Hour has launched this community collaborative initiative in the Tacoma Metro Area in recognition of the challenge that all communities experience in their effort to support local veterans and active duty forces. No single agency or entity can provide all the services that are needed to assist those who are serving, those who have come home from war, and their families. Give an Hour has developed expertise in harnessing and coordinating local networks of engaged stakeholders from across public, private, nonprofit, government, and military sectors to improve a community's support for its military population. The goal for this project is to create a comprehensive and integrated system of care for service members, veterans, and their families in these communities so that they have the knowledge of and access to the resources and services they need to lead the productive lives they deserve.
