Vet to Vet Maine is committed to alleviating social isolation and loneliness among Maine’s veterans and linking them to needed services. We accomplish this by connecting trained veteran volunteers with fellow veterans who need a friend. The volunteers visit at least twice a month and provide companionship, offer assistance with benefits, support independent living, and foster friendships and mentoring among veterans.
The specific objectives and purposes of this corporation shall be:
- To combat social isolation among veterans by linking veteran volunteers to fellow veterans in need of a friend;
- To connect veterans with services and benefits to which they are entitled and which promote and support independent living;
- To foster beneficial relationships and friendships and provide peer-to-peer mentoring among veterans;
- To provide worthwhile and meaningful volunteer opportunities for veterans.
