outreach events & an action referral group
who meets the mission of creating accessibility shortcuts for the military and veteran community
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 REFERRAL GROUP
VETReach is VSSN's professional referral networking group. Members simply create accessibility shortcuts to opportunities, products, and services for military and veteran families (including caregivers). VetReach members (individuals and businesses) meet their goals and our shared mission by becoming educated on how to help and expand a network of expert informants and direct connectors who can better serve with compassion, reduce barriers and save the lives of our veterans, military service members, their families, and caregivers.
