VFU (Veterans' Families United Foundation) was founded by 2006
Oklahoma Mother of the Year, Cynde Collins-Clark. Cynde's son Joe
returned from Iraq with undiagnosed, but severe PTSD (post-traumatic
stress disorder). In her quest for resources, psychotherapist
Collins-Clark discovered that she needed significant education to
find out what would best serve her son's painful process.
Vital and even life-saving resources were difficult to find.
Returning Veterans with PTSD were ill-prepared and sometimes
incapable of advocating for themselves. Collins-Clark
compassionately began to assemble a network of healing, educational
and empowerment based tools for Veterans and their families. This
compilation is an ongoing project. Collins-Clark would like to
create a community of support and service for a population that has
supported and served America. She is diligently developing VFU while
simultaneously taking care of her son.
