Case Foundation: The case foundation is one organization through which trained mental health professionals can provide pro bono services to returning vets and their families. They provide an hour a week, and the people receiving these services also have the opportunity to give back an hour of volunteer time in their own community. http://www.casefoundation.org/spotlight/civic_engagement/give-an-hour.
