Welcome to the VRC
A Message About Afghanistan from the VRC
The situation taking place in Afghanistan has generated manifold reactions. As a department, the faculty and staff of the Veterans Resource Center (VRC) are keenly aware these reactions hit deeply for our student veterans as well as our students that are reservists, active duty military, and military connected.
You are not alone. Your academic and personal well-being are our priority. We want to highlight a few Foothill and VA services and resources that you may find supportive during this time.
Would it help to speak with a counselor about your own experiences?
Below is a list of additional services and resources available to you provided by VA, as well as a few additional community services and resources.
While not an exhaustive list, below are a few additional community services and resources available.
With deep respect,
The Foothill College VRC Team

The Veteran Resource Center is a great spot to get what you need. Some days you need to print out a course syllabus get a snack or check in with your education plan with a counselor. Other days you might need to check out a textbook, get a book voucher, or get another snack. After a long road back to a full time student course load, I find myself returning to the VRC just to get a nice kick in the motivation seat. Keeps me laughing and studying.
