The Veterans Recovery Center offers art and the ability for veterans to create their own art. Veterans can go fishing, participate in unguided and guided meditations, play games, go virtual hiking and virtual boating, visit art exhibits and more in this virtual reality realm. Special events will be offered.

"We are just getting started," says Glenn Towery, the brainchild of this virtual center and founder of AVAFEST and the Veterans Suicide Prevention Channel (VSPChannel). AVAF Alt Logo Red 3.png

Mr. Towery calls it an amazing site with the capability to continue improving as the years go by, especially if they can add the right involvements in developing the site. The VSPChannel is dedicated to creating a place for healing in the virtual realms for veterans, military personnel and their family members. He says, "We welcome participation and guidance with the VA and  Representative John Carter's office in further development of this essential virtual reality space to ensure that it becomes an effective tool in our quest to end the veteran suicide epidemic.."

Mr. Towery encourages everyone to please visit the site to see what the VSPChannel through AVAFEST is attempting to do in VRChat, SPATIAL and other Virtual Worlds to promote relaxation and well-being for veterans who frequently visit virtual world spaces. 

"See what our virtual program offers veterans and what the possibilities are in the future as we work to grow this site into a virtual ability to make better and to save lives of veterans, military personnel and their family members from suicide!" he adds.
