“After many years of war in too many areas of the world, young men and women who have faced multiple deployments are coming face to face with the hard reality of finding work, finding a place to live, finding the right follow-on medical care for the injuries they have incurred, and finding the direction for the rest of their lives. That is a huge problem in the military and veteran rich communities of the Pikes Peak region, and it is going to get worse as the military reduces force structure to levels not seen since before World War II. Add to that equation the number of current veterans and their families who may be facing similar problems as well as issues in housing, drug or alcohol abuse, child or spousal abuse, and the community problem is just magnified.” Read More

Eduardo Baller, among the veterans attending a recent demonstration of the Network of Care website at Pikes Peak Community College, said that the website will help him navigate the information and resources he is seeking on such issues as education and employment. Mr. Baller was also featured in a KOAA story on the launch of the Peak Military Care Network.
Finding help for all of Eduardo’s needs was a daunting prospect for Eduardo, but the Peak Military Care Network and its partner agencies provide the broad range of services to assist him and his growing family. With community resources now accessible, Eduardo has a job and is attending classes at Pikes Peak Community College. And he has big plans for the future. “This is just one chapter in my life; it’s not my book, just one chapter. I have hundreds of more pages to write.”
