Take A Look At The Many Ways You Can Get Involved As A Service Provider

Our nonprofit organization has witnessed the many ways our professional service providers have transformed the lives of our veterans. Your work is crucial to their healing process and demonstrates the deep connections within our community. Below are a few professional partnerships we aim to grow in the future. If your service is not listed, we are always interested in hearing from you if you believe your expert skills can directly help struggling veterans..

Mental Health Therapists For Veterans


if a veteran struggles with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), substance abuse issues or navigating life outside the military, he or she can benefit from our therapy services. Our professional volunteer base allows us to offer essential mental health support. As a mental health therapist, you will have the chance to make a big impact on a veteran’s life by either working with him or her pro bono or at a reduced rate. The Bodhi Battalion offers our service providers the use of our offices and facilities for therapy sessions. Many of the veterans we assist do not have access to reliable transportation, so any flexibility in your schedule is appreciated.

Massage Therapists


Veterans are especially vulnerable to fears, anxiety and PTSD, and they often experience recurring physical symptoms of built-up stress in their bodies. By volunteering your massage therapy skills during community events or schedule sessions, you can be an important part of a veteran’s healing process. The art of professional massage often complements PTSD therapy, anxiety treatment and physical therapy, and allows veterans to release the tension that has accrued in their muscles.

Acupuncturists


Veterans suffering from lingering physical pain related to injuries, as well as those engaging in trauma treatment, may also benefit from acupuncture treatment sessions. By volunteering for veterans and providing free and reduced-rate acupuncture sessions, implemented in conjunction with mental health therapy, you can offer veterans a new way to approach their physical and emotional symptoms related to trauma and stress.

Nutritionists


When veterans start to regain stability in their lives, they often need nutrition advice and guidance to learn about healthy lifestyles and how to cook meals for themselves. As a nutritionist volunteer, you’ll work with veterans to develop personalized health plans and educate them on the many ways they can make healthy choices in their lives. After you create nutrition plans, you may also help veterans by going grocery shopping with them or teaching them the basics of cooking so they can implement what they have learned. For each veteran client you decide to work with, we ask that you provide enough time to assess his or her personal health situation, plan for short and long-term goals and follow up on his or her progress.

Yoga Instructors


Veterans struggling with PTSD, anxiety and emotional pain can benefit from the peaceful and meditative effects of yoga classes. By volunteering as a yoga instructor, you can help veterans achieve a calm, reflective state of mind – allowing them to work with their bodies to destress and live in the moment. Yoga sessions with veterans should focus on body sensations and emotional tranquility, rather than more intense physical fitness.

Other Service Providers


Whether you are a dentist, a hair stylist or another service provider, our veterans are in need of your professional work. Many of the veterans who seek out help from the Bodhi Battalion have been homeless and may not have any money to pay for the basic necessities in life, such as haircuts and routine dental care. If you believe your service can benefit veterans in your community, we want to hear from you!

If you are a service provider, you may have questions and concerns about volunteering for veterans…

Does volunteering for veterans present any potential dangers?

Safety for everyone involved is our top priority. While many veterans we work with have fallen on hard times and may struggle with mental health and/or substance abuse issues, we thoroughly assess the potential risks of each client before offering services. If we foresee any potential problems, we will inform you before you start working with certain veterans.

I’m worried I don’t have time to commit to volunteer work.

After you meet with a veteran and determine his or her needs, you may decide to move forward with free or reduced-rate sessions. We ask that if you start working with one or more veterans, you continue to work with them on a regular basis until their needs are met. If you end up taking on too much volunteering work, then we are always open to reassessing your time commitment.

It’s possible that your schedule is too full to take on regular clients. Depending on the nature of your service, you are welcome to offer complimentary sessions at one of our community events. These events benefit veterans by offering helpful services as well as directly funding Bodhi Battalion resources, making it possible for us to continue meeting veterans’ needs.
