Organizations Funded in 2017:

At Ease

At Ease USA (AEU) supports active military, veterans and their families and loved ones with confidential, research-supported, cost-effective treatment for post-traumatic stress (PTSD) and related disorders. Over the past 4 years, over 1,900 veterans and their families have been helped and the numbers are increasing. AEU is embarking on a new initiative: the Preferred Provider Network (PPN). AEU saw a need to reach beyond the brick and mortar clinics to reach veterans and families located in remote areas of Nebraska and the metropolitan area. These satellite clinics will extend the reach of the services currently provided by AEU. Additionally, AEU would launch a teletherapy program to reach those in remote areas or who will not leave their homes.
