Student Veterans of America:
Student Veterans of America is a Chapter-based organization with about 1,500 locations on college campuses nationwide. We represent about 750,000 student veterans and work on personal and professional development, leadership training, and advocacy at the federal level.

Home Front Military Network:
HFMN is a collaborative, working with nearly 50 service providers; we connect military service members, veterans and their families to essential resources, including financial assistance provided by HFMN and our partners, in order to meet the full range of needs of individual and families. Our programs include Navigation (Case Management); Financial Bridge Support; Information & Assistance; and Education & Outreach.

WarriorNOW:
WarriorNOW has designed and implemented a program that brings Structure, Camaraderie, and Purpose back into Veterans and their families lives, and we do this through peer-to-peer mentoring, recreational therapy, PTSD groups, pro-social events, and education on topics pertaining to mental health, addiction, and building healthy relationships. WarriorNOW has flipped the conventional treatment model 180 degrees to start with building protective factors and coping skills first through peer work, and then when the Veteran is ready, we start the individual clinical work.

Thanks for taking the time to answer our questions!

I'm moving to Fort Collins in a few months. What's the best timing and process for notifying my current VA in Massachusetts so records are transferred and appointments can be made at the correct facility?

Also, are there any unique benefits given to Veterans in CO that I should be aware of?

All records are electronic. Once you get settled in Ft. Collins you can call [login to see] to update your address. You also should check in with the Ft. Collins Out Patient Clinic. https://www.va.gov/directory/guide/facility.asp?ID=870

Colorado allows 1 free vehicle registration for 50% and above rated. 2nd vehicle is $50 so put your highest valued vehicle first. Also colorado has a veteran identifier on your license.
