Many military veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder, which can occur following the experience of a life threatening event such as combat. The PTSD Foundation of America assists military veterans struggling with this disorder in many ways, including Camp Hope, a facility in north Houston that provides interim housing and support services for veterans and their families from combat-related PTSD.
The 3 Phase recovery program includes adoption to the community, learning new skills and finally return to civilian life. Phase 3 is overseen by Houston Apartment Association’s (HAA) member Lori Lindley, a property supervisor with Greystar and an ambassador for the PTSD Foundation and Camp Hope.
Since April, Lindley, who helps find apartments for recent graduates, has helped 18 graduates find apartments. Lindley calls among HAA members to participate and support the Camp Hope initiative and many members are already helping.
Brook Furniture Rental has already donated furniture so that graduates can begin living in a fully furnished new apartment. ” We are honored and proud to give back to these veterans that give so freely for their country, ” said Kim Ashley, director of national accounts for Brook Furniture Rental. “We should embrace them afterwards. After all we are family – multifamily.”
The people Lindley helps start a new healthy life rave about her with gratitude. A recent Camp Hope graduate writes … “I cannot even begin to measure up to what you have given me in a million years, but I can tell you I am speechless in how thankful I am. Just when I thought I was blown away, I walked into my apartment to find a bounty of furniture. One day I hope and wish I can help someone in the way you have helped me.”
