Verity Vet Services – April 2, 2018

Verity Military & Veterans Services
Ongoing Services in Sonoma County

Verity offers free, confidential services for survivors of military sexual trauma (MST) who are residents of Sonoma County.

MST is a term defined in the Department of Veteran Affairs as trauma resulting from any sexual assault or repeated sexual harassment while in the military. Thanks to funding from the Sonoma County Department of Human Services, Verity is able to provide veterans, as well as people currently serving in the military, free resources that include counseling and advocacy.

Verity named its program for veterans with MST The Forgotten Warriors Project, which reflects the US military’s history of being unwilling to acknowledge sexual harassment and sexual assault in its midst. Although the military is now working to develop their own programs to respond to MST, The Forgotten Warriors Project is another avenue for veterans and enlisted soldiers who don’t want to formally report their victimization to seek help.

We provide individual counseling and other forms of support to survivors of Military Sexual Trauma of all genders.

Crisis line is staffed 24 hours a day: (707) 545-7273.
