 We create so much more than crafts. The veterans we serve become part of the Help Heal Veterans community of staff, volunteers and supporters; they’re appreciated and valued, and they make connections that can turn into lifelong friendships. Nowhere is this stronger than in our Community-Based Arts and Crafts Centers (CBCs).

 The AWA is dedicated to honoring, aiding and supporting the Military, Veterans and First Responders who uphold the principles of our country and have chosen to unselfishly serve others and effect positive change in society. We recognize that the American Fighting Spirit is a cornerstone in the cultural foundation of our Nation, and that it continues to be a force for good.

Our services include counseling for needs such as depression, post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and the psychological effects of military sexual trauma (MST).

As a result, ERCOT is also asking customers to voluntarily reduce their usage and prevent electric outages by unplugging or turning off any non-critical equipment, closing shades and blinds, and reducing lighting where possible and safe. Additional energy-saving tips can be found at ercot.com/txans. Don’t forget to care of your four-legged friends during this time of excessive heat. Here are a few suggestions for keeping your pets safe are: 

  • Never leave your pet in a hot vehicle
  • Limit your pets exercise on hot days
  • Walk your pet in the grass to avoid hot surfaces burning their paws
  • Make sure your pet has access to shade and plenty of cool water
  • Know that heat strokes are common to dogs with short snouts, dogs who are overweight and pets with extremely thick fur coats
  • If your pet is experiencing heavy panting, is unable to calm down or unable to get up – seek a veterinarian’s advice, immediately

Finally, let's look out for one another during this period of extreme heat. Reach out to your friends, colleagues, and classmates, especially those who may be more vulnerable to the effects of high temperatures. Small gestures of support, such as checking in on each other's well-being or offering a helping hand, can make a significant difference.
