VetGR is a pioneer in the non-profit space providing specialized counseling, therapy, and coaching for veteran’s families dealing with the many issues related to transitioning back into civilian life.
Jesse and Tara Johnson-Brower created this legacy organization for veterans and veterans families because they saw a need for advocacy. Many agencies promote and aid veteran centered programing, but the spouse and family remain in the shadows and voiceless. Jesse and Tara Johnson-Brower realized that the spouse and family are equally important to the veteran's success.
Why did veteran Jesse Johnson-Brower survive his challenging eight-year transition back into civilian life? Because his wife Tara STAYED! She Will Stay is a first in the veteran community offering a safe community of support for wives of combat veterans. Tara Johnson-Brower created this groundbreaking program which encourages wives to STAY as their husbands focus on healing. She Will Stay provides a safe environment for wives of veterans to discuss difficult issues, support and empower one another. She Will Stay is a commitment not to walk out when things get hard, but to fight along side their spouse and win together.
