Life message serving our veterans

VETERANS RESOURCE & OUTREACH CENTER

 The Veterans Resource & Outreach Center (VROC) in Rowlett, TX  is here to help meet the rising needs of veterans and their families.


This 4,500 sf facility, located at 4210 Industrial Street Bldg 100, serves as the base of operations for a variety of programs and services for the veteran community. We’re proud to be the home of great Veterans Service Organizations like; The DAV Chapter 137, The Marine Corps Lake Ray Hubbard Detachment, and the American Legion Post 347 who support our efforts in the community. 
During our first year, the VROC has seen more than 1,500 veterans, helped write over 700 benefits claims, hosted countless workshops & seminars and provided countless veterans with food, clothing, home & car repairs, counseling, jobs, and so much more. We are committed to bringing long-term solutions to those who have served our great nation. 

Thanks to all the volunteers and generous donors who have contributed to our success. 

We couldn’t have done it without you.

Open to all veterans, our peer-to-peer Veterans Therapy Group provides an opportunity for our local Veterans, who have readjusted to civilian life, to form relationships with those Veterans in need. Our group will be led by trained veteran counselors offering a deeper level of connection and insight.


Through these relationships, veterans will build resiliency through encouragement, personal connections, and access to support and crisis intervention measures. The group will work on socialization skills, problem solving, disseminating information on VA issues and other relevant topics of discussion. 


This group will provide a supportive therapeutic environment for all attendees.

COST: $5

Veterans & their spouses are invited to join us for this workshop led by industry experts on how to ease the burden on your family when it comes to planning and preparedness for long-term care and funeral arrangements. 

Unfortunately, most people think, "I've got plenty of time" until something unexpectedly happens and your family is both emotionally devastated and financially struggling. It's true you can't know, but you can be prepared.
