Give an Hour is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides free mental health services to military members, veterans, and their families. Give an hour was founded in September 2005 by Dr. Barbara Van Dahlen, a psychologist in the Washington, D.C. area.
Give an Hour has been instrumental in the development of a community-based approach that addresses the challenges our nation's military community face, by assembling a team of eager skill-based volunteers. Thus far, the network of nearly 7,000 licensed mental health professionals has provided more than 200,000 hours of care and support to members of the military and their families.
