“…It is comforting to know there are people who care so much. After a year of surgeries, treatment and therapy, it can be discouraging. Although I am a trained attorney, due to TBI, it is unclear what my future will be. The computer will help with my therapy and my transition back to civilian work.” – Captain V, U.S. Army Reserves
Who We Are and What We Do
Valor-IT helps provide voice-controlled/adaptive laptop computers and other necessary technology to support veterans recovering from hand wounds and other severe injuries. The Valor-IT program runs through our VA Medical Center support programs. As part of the application process, the Veteran will need: Case Worker’s name, phone number, e-mail address as well as a letter from the VA case manager to verify their need. If approved, the veteran will be shipped a voice-controlled/adaptive laptop directly to their home.
Items supplied include:
Voice-controlled laptops, which are operated by speaking into a microphone or using other adaptive technologies. They allow wounded veterans to maintain connections with the rest of the world during recovery.
iPads & Personal GPS – Portable computers like iPads and handheld GPS devices build self-confidence and independence by compensating for short-term memory loss and organizational challenges related to severe TBI and severe PTSD.
To be eligible you must be a Post 9-11 wounded, ill and injured veteran and must have injuries which require computer and electronics accommodations.
