Answering the challenges that the state’s military service members, veterans and their families face, Oregon Partnership has added a groundbreaking Military Helpline to its crisis lines services.
OP will utilize its years of knowledge and expertise in dealing with confidential crisis intervention and sensitivity to military issues.
The new Military Helpline bridges the access-to-service gap that many of these Oregonians face, especially after returning home from Iraq and Afghanistan.
