Services for Individuals with Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI)
Arizona’s TBI Specialists provide services that help secure and maintain meaningful employment. These specialists may provide assistance in the following areas:
•Job skills assessment – will determine the kind of work a person is able to do as well as those areas of employment that would be most suitable;
•Job training – will help develop skills that may help a person succeed in their chosen employment or expand their options;
•Job search and preparation – will put individuals in touch with appropriate employment opportunities and will help prepare for the interview;
•Job support – will help with counseling and guidance as well as providing, if appropriate, the tools, transportation and other employment-related expenses needed to succeed;
•Employer/employee relations – will work with employer to create a positive environment, one in which a person will be more likely to succeed.
There are no financial eligibility requirements for participation in this program, although certain support services are limited to those individuals meeting income guidelines.
Arizona Animal Welfare League is dedicated to providing service canines to our warriors suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The goal of Project 22 is to empower our warriors to return to civilian life with dignity and independence.
Every day, roughly 22 military veterans commit suicide, thus, the significance behind the name “Project 22.” Additionally, there are hundreds of dogs euthanized every day.
Soldier’s Best Friend
We are devoted to helping our veterans and the pet overpopulation problem.
Once a veteran or active military member is accepted into our program they will be paired with a dog adopted from a local shelter or with a dog already owned by the vet. They will live together from that point forward.
