Vet2Vet Peer Networking Groups

"Ready to Lead, Ready to Follow, Never Quit"

 

·         Seeking a connection with your fellow Nassau County Veterans?

·         Need the support of buddies to overcome personal challenges?

·         Want to continue your “service” by helping fellow veterans in need?

 

Nassau County is one of 12 New York State Counties that are participating in the PFC. Joseph Dwyer Program, which provides Veteran Peer Support. Vet2Vet groups are small groups of veterans, who meet weekly, to share knowledge, provide mutual support, and share resources. Groups will maintain confidentiality, and are open to veterans of all generations, regardless of discharge status. Groups will be co-facilitated by a diverse team of fellow veterans who have been training in providing veteran peer support.

Vet2Vet groups are FREE OF CHARGE. NO pre-registration is necessary – Just come to any of the following:
