    Minimum Standards for Inclusion in the Volunteer Provider Network


    In order to successfully fulfill our mission, we require that volunteer providers:

  • Hold a current license in good standing that is authorized by the appropriate state licensing board in Oregon and/or Washington
  • Be covered by current liability insurance for their practice
  • Participate in a Returning Veterans Project orientation prior to accepting clients

  • Providers Currently Working Towards Licensure


    The Returning Veterans Project welcomes providers currently working towards state licensure as part of their post-graduate, state-contracted work. Volunteer intern providers must be currently supervised by a licensed and insured practitioner. Please read the additional requirements* for volunteering if you hold a graduate degree in behavioral health and are a:

  • Board-Approved Psychologist Applicant
  • LCSW Intern
  • LPC Registered Intern
  • MFT Intern

  • *The Returning Veterans Project requires that each licensed and insured provider who supervises a volunteer intern submit a written letter. The letter must include the supervising provider's contact information, credentials, and written confirmation of their supervision of the intern. Both supervisor and intern are required to submit proof of licensure and liability insurance.

    To submit an application for a volunteer intern, please review our Steps to Joining the Returning Veterans Project Provider Network.


    Steps to Joining the Returning Veterans Project Volunteer Provider Network

    Please review our Provider Agreement prior to beginning an application.

    Step 1: Submit an Application
    Fill out the online application. This form is the same for intern applications. Please note, you will be required to attach a copy of your current malpractice insurance and signed provider agreement.

    Step 2: Verification and Orientation
    Once an application is received and reviewed, a staff member from the Returning Veterans Project will contact you to schedule a "Welcome Call" and orientation.

    Step 3: How Returning Veteran Project Clients Access Your Services
    Once orientation is complete, you will be listed on the Returning Veterans Project online directory. Veterans, service members, and their families (commonly referred to as “Returning Veterans Project Clients”) will access the online directory and select their preferred provider.

    Returning Veterans Project clients will contact the provider directly to schedule an appointment.


    Thank you for your interest in supporting post-9/11 war zone veterans, service members, and their families!
