Truman VA Partnerships
Truman VA has a wide variety of partnerships for Veterans in the community. Below are a few partnerships for Veterans:
Access Arts - We offer creative learning experiences for EVERYONE. From the beginner to the advanced artist, all are welcome in the Access Arts studios.
Coyote Hill Veteran's Equine Program - No horse experience is necessary, but you do need to be physically fit enough to ride. The goal of this program is whatever you need it to be. If you are looking for some peace and inner healing and would like to experience nature on the back of a horse while developing relationships with fellow veterans, consider joining us.
K9s on the Front Line - K9s on The Front Line is a Maine-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization providing certified, trained service dogs to military Veterans who are affected by PTSD and/or TBI, at no cost to our Veterans.
Mid-America Special Sportsman's Association - Since 1999, our goal has been to help special needs individuals get the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors who would not otherwise have the means to do so, while creating friendships and memories that last a lifetime!
Trauma Sensitive Yoga - We’re introducing a specialized yoga class for all who have experienced any kind of trauma, but all are welcome. This practice allows us to learn how to free troubling emotions, persevering thought patterns, chronic somatic tension and hyper vigilance through concentrated breathing and slow-moving asanas, as well as meditation and mindfulness exercises in a safe and trusting environment
Veterans Urban Farm - Patients at the Truman VA Hospital have the opportunity to serve as paid apprentices through the VA’s transitional work program. Apprentices work to maintain the Veterans Urban Farm over the course of the growing season. Fruits and vegetables grown on site are sold to the public, donated to local veterans, and used in health-focused programming at the VA Hospital. VA patients participate in recreational therapy programs, MOVE! weight management classes, the healthy teaching kitchen, and whole health initiatives also utilize the site.
