The Florida Department of Veterans Affairs and other state agencies are trying a new project in the Tampa bay area. The hotline at 1-844-MY-FL-VET (or 1-844 693-5838) is available to veterans as well as active duty. Veterans at the Crisis Center of Tampa Bay direct people in need to the resources that can help them. On this support line, veterans can speak with veterans. Veterans, their families, or anyone associated with a veteran can use this hotline. Veterans in the Tampa area can also call the 2-1-1 line, and ask to speak with a veteran.
