Helping the Severely Wounded Learn How to Dream Again

be available to program participants. Clients will have unlimited access to mental health professionals to help them understand and better control the emotional and mental impacts of their wounds.

Veteran clients will be housed in separate cottages located on the Center grounds. The two-bedroom residences will allow family members to stay with clients and enable them to receive therapy as a family. The "green" project will utilize geothermal technology and photovoltaic cells, which will protect the environment while reducing energy costs.

Though still in its embryonic stage, the center's heartbeat is growing stronger. Planners hope the center will be receiving its first applications by early 2009. The support and rehabilitation programs are designed for veterans who have experienced amputations, severe burns, traumatic brain injuries and post traumatic stress disorder. Clients will be referred to the center by VA medical centers, Veteran Readjustment Counseling Centers (Vet Centers), other medical service providers and mental health agencies. But veterans in need, and family members, will be able to send applications for admission directly to the center.

"Some wounded veterans will need medical care and rehabilitation services for a long time," Lightfoot said. "We're hoping this project becomes a blueprint for successful long-term therapy so others will be able to develop similar facilities in other parts of the country."

The greatest need now is additional funds to ensure that the center opens on schedule. Lightfoot is hoping the business sector, the faith community, civic organizations and individual donations will turn this critical vision into reality. "This is a tremendous opportunity for the community at large to show its support for America's veterans," she said. "Restoring hope for those who have been wounded in service to the country is the best way to honor them."
