veterans supplemental support network
Our mission is to end and prevent suicide, homelessness, and hardship among veteran and military service members and their families.
Our mission is met in three simple ways:
VSSN SIGNATURE OUTREACH EVENTS
VSSN reaches over 18,000 service-connected community members each year per chapter location. Each VSSN signature event (Daisy Walk, Salute to Heroes, & Winter Wonderland) is designed to save lives and say thank you from our members who offer free food, resource connection to housing, financial empowerment, veteran/military services, health and wellness, legal support, education, employment opportunities, and other life-improving services and products.
VSSN VETReach EVENT PARTERS
VETReach is VSSN's professional referral networking group that bands together to support VSSN's signature events and local outreach efforts. Members simply create accessibility shortcuts to opportunities, products, and services for military and veteran families (including caregivers). Learn more/join as a business or individual
