Friendships That Can Last a Lifetime
Vet to Vet Maine is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization dedicated to serving veterans in the state of Maine. Formed in June 2018, Vet to Vet Maine offers support, companionship, a friend who understands, and a link to services to lonely and socially isolated veterans.
Vet to Vet Maine matches veteran volunteers with other veterans who need a friend and/or mentor. The two veterans visit on a regular basis (at least twice a month), sharing stories, enjoying activities together, and developing a friendship that can last a lifetime. Trained volunteers also guide their veteran friends in applying for needed services and benefits.
For soldiers just returning from the battlefield, they provide a mentor who can help lead the way back to civilian life, a fellow soldier who has been there and understands, a friend who listens and offers a helping hand.
For the older veteran dealing with illness, aging, the loss of a spouse, or other challenges, Vet to Vet Maine’s volunteers provide companionship, a link to the greater community, assistance in obtaining well-deserved benefits and services, and a friend who shares stories.
Your Support Can Make a World of Difference
With your help, we can fulfill the values of a just society by supporting our veterans and helping ease the social isolation that too many of them face.
It costs approximately $1,000 to support one volunteer/veteran match for a year.
Your donation of any amount can make a world of difference to a veteran in need of a friend.
Veterans have pledged their lives to protect us and our loved ones. Now it’s our turn to pledge our support for them.
