Carmel Veterans Service provides transition and employment assistance, behavioral health and wellness, supportive services, connection to community resources, and safe event space for veterans, military members and their families. Our non-profit has directly impacted more than 5,000 unique clients in the Pikes Peak region through more than 20,000 client visits since 2016.
Mt. Carmel was a dream of Mr. Jay Cimino and his strong desire to support our veteran community in meaningful ways.
The Transition and Employment team directly assists transitioning service members, veterans of all eras, and their family members in gaining meaningful employment, emphasized support for military spouses. The team collaborates with employers, military installations, and community partners to ensure success. The Colorado Governor recently extended state funding five years for the Veterans Service to Career program based on strong success of our pilot program.
Our Behavioral Health and Wellness services include individual, group & couples therapy, no-cost therapeutic retreats, and non-traditional therapies including trauma-focused yoga, PTS-focused art and photo therapy, tai-chi and more. Services are confidential and open to veterans of all era and regardless of discharge status.
Supportive Services are a hand-up to members of the veteran community experiencing crisis. Working with national and community partners, the goal is to help people stabilize their lives allowing them to access other wellness and career services they may need.
Mt. Carmel also provides a safe, multi-functional space to support groups and our partners. We collaborate with over 40 community partners to ensure success for our clients.
