Joseph P. Dwyer Veteran Peer Support Project

Currently seeking Volunteers and Peer Mentors, if interested please fill out our VOLUNTEER APPLICATION

The Hudson Valley Center for Veteran Reintegration (HVCVR) recognizes the daily challenges that are faced by Veterans. HVCVR Vet2Vet Program will combat these challenges by working with Veterans that serve as peer specialists to host group and individual meetings with Veterans seeking non-clinical support. HVCVR Veteran Peers will provide mental health support and advocacy to Veterans daily.

HVCVR Vet2Vet Peer Support Program will continue the mission of supporting military veterans that experience Post-Traumatic Stress and other moral injuries that lead to suicide and substance abuse. Veteran Peers work to eliminate the stigmas and labels by advocating, supporting, and providing a connection that empowers one another. Veteran Peers engage in continuous training and look at identifying the best practices for addressing the needs of each Veteran served.

Discharge status, rank, and the branch of service are not immune to the difficulties we face daily. The Veteran community picked up the mantel that said, “I will serve and protect my country.” HVCVR Vet2Vet Peer Support will pick up the mantel that says, “They are not heavy, they are my brother and sister.”
