Connecting Texas Veterans


The Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) is an affiliation of service members, veterans, and family members dedicated to establishing camaraderie and trust with each other, identifying and vetting community resources, and collectively contributing to the communities where we live.


We accomplish this through commitment, training, and volunteerism.  We commit to having each other’s backs. We train in Peer Support and Mental Health Awareness so that not only can we care, we can act and advocate appropriately.  We volunteer by being Peers, Peer Group Leaders, and citizens making a difference.
