New York City is home to hundreds of veteran-serving organizations along with one of the most diverse veteran populations in the country. These resources are located throughout the five boroughs and offer a multitude of services for the city’s military connected population. However, due to the unique landscape of New York City, it can be difficult for veterans, service members and their families to identify and connect to the services that are right for them.
Who We Serve
The New York City Department of Veterans’ Services works to support every service member, veteran, survivor and family member who lives, attends school, or works in New York City, regardless of discharge status, length of service, or era of service. While not all services are available to everyone, our Care Coordinators strive to find the best resources for everyone.
Who We Are
VetConnectNYC is run by the New York City Department of Veterans’ Services (DVS). The mission of the NYC Department of Veterans’ Services is to connect, mobilize, and empower New York City’s Veteran community in order to foster purpose driven lives for US Military Service Members–past and present–in addition to their caregivers, survivors, and families. Our sole purpose is helping service members, veterans, survivors, and families find the resources they need to live fulfilling and purpose-driven lives.
