Lutheran Family Services of Nebraska’s (LFS) At Ease program provides trauma treatment and therapeutic support for active military, veterans, and their loved ones through comprehensive care that includes counseling, peer support and community service access. The At Ease Incarcerated Veterans Ministry began in 2015 when the Veterans’ unit at the Douglas County Department of Corrections jail opened. The Veterans Administration and Victory Apartments veterans’ housing asked LFS to expand its At Ease program to serve these incarcerated veterans and support their reentry into civilian life.
