Tulsa Vet Center Has New Location
The Tulsa Vet Center has a new home in the Tulsa area.
The center moved from 1408 S. Harvard Avenue, which it called home for 16 years, to its new location at 14002 E. 21st Street, Suite 200. It is located inside the Eastgate Metroplex Center, formerly known as the Eastland Mall.
The new Location provides additional parking and space and will accommodate a new licensed Marriage and Family therapist.
The center is open to any Veteran who served in a combat zone or experienced sexual trauma while on active duty. Services are also available for family members who lost a loved one while on active duty.
The center provides counseling services for individuals and groups and specialized counseling services to include marriage and family, bereavement and military sexual trauma (combat service not required). The center also conducts outreach counseling by visiting Veterans where they live and by participating in area programs to reach veterans in need of services.
“At the Vet Center, we welcome home war veterans,” said Stephen Craig, the Tulsa Vet Center Team Leader. “The Vet Center provides quality readjustment services in a caring manner, assisting Veterans and their family members toward a successful postwar adjustment.”
The Vet Center is also fortunate enough to have an Outreach Station in Tahlequah. The full time counselor, Matt Tiger, has an office in the Cherokee Nation which again enables more and more veterans to be reached in the rural communities for their readjustment needs.
The Vet Center is free and confidential. Information will not be released to any person or agency without written consent from the client, except in circumstances averting a crisis.
Veterans or family members are encouraged to make an appointment, but can also be seen on a walk-in basis.
The Vet Center is hosting an Open House on Dec. 7th from 9:30am to 3:30pm, which is open to Veterans, their families and referral agents.
