The Heroes Center Services
The Heroes Center is currently undergoing renovations to provide shelter to student veterans attending, or wanting to attend, GTCC. Next, the Center has ambitious plans to finish a camp that will help thousands of veterans transition toward healthy, productive lives. The camp is ideally located minutes from the Guilford Technical Community College campus and downtown High Point. Outdoor sports, including hunting and fishing, are minutes away.
Well beyond our lifetimes, the Center will offer veterans shelter, food, counseling for them and their loved ones, access to education, vocational training, job placement, healthcare and transportation to veteran healthcare and activities.
A 501(c)3, Non-Profit Dedicated to Military Warriors & Their Loved Ones
The Heroes Center is a non-profit organization whose mission is to serve, support and strengthen student veterans and their families with programs, services, events and resources. By housing student veterans, hosting retreats and providing access to professional counseling in a peaceful, nurturing environment, we help veterans re-establish themselves in society. At the Heroes Center, veterans can, once again, find their place in a community surrounded by their peers.
Transition to Civilian Life
The challenges of transitioning back to civilian life after a tour of duty can be overwhelming. Many of our veterans have been exposed to life-or-death situations and are still haunted by ghosts of their time in the service. Coping can push their psychological capacities to the limit, and as a result, many veterans are suffering from homelessness, drug addiction, alcoholism and depression. The Heroes Center community will offer support services to vets to make this transition easier.
