A Shelby County non-profit organization is showing their commitment to those who have served our country by offering free counseling.
The East Texas News learned that providing veterans with much needed resources is a priority for The Hope Project.
Jean Diebolt is a Vietnam veteran as well as the founder of The Hope Project in Tenaha. She shaped the non-profit clinic around her commitment to providing services to our country's veterans.
The Hope Project offers free counseling services to all service men and women.
Burnett said there aren't a lot of resources for veterans in East Texas and that is what motivated them to offer counseling.
Burnett said it's often hard to get veterans to come and talk about their PTSD or other issues they might be facing but coming in is the first step.
Burnett said veterans can come and talk about anything from deployment issues to family problems as well as any other situations that might be causing stress in their life.
