Mission: VetCheck

Mission: VetCheck

Mission: VetCheck - Volunteer with Mission: VetCheck to make supportive check-in calls to NYC veterans.

"Almost every time veterans have expressed gratitude even if they do not want to speak. I have had the most amazing conversations with people. Every single one of them is happy to receive the call." - Bernice, Mission: VetCheck volunteer

Mission: VetCheck is a partnership between New York Cares and DVS that leverages volunteers to make supportive check-in calls to veterans across the city. This vital outreach effort creates a crucial point of connection between veterans and their community through phone calls that provide resources and information about public services, including free  meals, housing resources, employment information, and mental health services. Most importantly, this initiative creates a way for New Yorkers to express their gratitude to  our veterans for their service to our country.
