I recently found out about two organizations offering help to veterans with mental health issues and those facing homelessness.

I've had some experience with Veterans affairs yet, I'd never heard of these two organizations. Thinking that others may not be familiar with them either, here's what I found. ( I learned about these reading about a mental health care summit for Veterans health care providers happening this Friday. For more on that, click here.)

The first is Endeavors. According to their website, they offer:

Homelessness Prevention & Stabilization Services to Veterans and their families in Texas. These supportive services include outreach, case management, help in obtaining VA benefits, emergency financial assistance for rent & utilities and assistance in obtaining and coordinating other public benefits.

The second is NAMI El Paso. Their website says they provide:

advocacy, education, support and public awareness so that all individuals and families affected by mental health conditions can build better lives. NAMI El Paso hopes to eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health in the Borderland through educational classes, presentations, advocacy, and support groups.
