When War Comes Home


Our Veteran Friendly Congregation Initiative (VFCI) is now taking reservations for our

 “When War Comes Home” Forum on May 1, 2014.

Sponsored by the Veteran Friendly Congregation Initiative

Your congregation can be an environment of acceptance for veterans and their families.

Did you know that veterans are five times more likely to seek help from their clergy than every VA service combined?

Your congregation could help promote awareness of the needs of those sacrificing their time and effort to support our country.
