“Each season of life brings triumphs and challenges; both go better when we’re there for each other.”
—Ernie

Ernie Tafalla, Veterans Outreach Coordinator at Partners In Care, understands the needs of seriously ill veterans living in Central Oregon. As a Vietnam War veteran, Ernie knows that military service may leave some veterans with physical, mental, or spiritual wounds resulting in major health issues.

Ernie is there for our veterans, providing support and encouragement with a variety of options.
