Connecting Texas Veterans

 

The Military Veteran Peer Network is an affiliation of Service Members, Veterans and Family Members dedicated to establish 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 have 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.
