We are an all-volunteer nonprofit. All our content is free.

The Community Veterans Project (CVP) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that is web-based. We believe that if PTS/TBI is recognized early there is a better chance of altering the usual downward trajectory observed with many so affected veterans. The CVP neither seeks nor accepts government subsidies. We exist solely through the generous support of individuals.

Our Philosophy: Learn. Act. Help.

For some time, veterans and their families informed us that they were frustrated by the lack of practical information on how to recognize and then manage PTS/TBI. The CVP felt the need to address those concerns. We undertook the mission to identify and categorize a variety of information related to PTS/TBI and present the data in a non-technical, non-clinical manners in video and easy-to-read checklists. We are grateful to the hundreds of veterans and their families who poured out their stories to us. Those people wanted others to learn from their difficult and sometimes impossible journeys.

For more than two years, CVP interviewed--the Subject Matter Experts--current and long-term sufferers of PTS/TBI and members of their family circle. Questions were posed such as, “If you knew then what you know now about PTS/TBI, what would you tell others who are beginning those same challenges today? What suggestions might veterans give to other veterans? What advice would veterans give their families?” Those 24-karat pieces of advice are located within the downloadable PDFs and videos.

We believe that sharing healthy best practices from people who have, "Been there done that. Try this instead..." is a force multiplier. 

Sharing What We've Learned

We are blessed that organizations large and small, parents, spouses, and veterans want to hear from us.
