Welcome them Home, Help Them Heal is a resource booklet (112 pages) for pastors and churches who wish to assist returning combat veterans suffering from PTSD and related issues. PTSD is viewed by many as a kind of disability. It is readable and practical, explaining the nature of war, challenges faced by returning soldiers, and the physical, psychological and spiritual wounds of war. It suggests proven ways in which a church may be an agent of healing by reaching out effectively, creating a safe environment and offering special services and retreats throughout the Church Year. A section at the end tells how to find national, state, county and local partnering agencies, and includes a few quick assessment tools for identifying issues and making referrals.
