Vets4Warriors is a national nonprofit, based at Rutgers University, that provides a live, 24/7 peer support network that any veteran, service member, caregiver or family member can contact for confidential conversations and trusted solutions to physical, mental or social challenges, before those challenges turn into crises.
Military and Veteran Caregiver Network
Nearly 6 million Americans care for wounded, ill and injured military service members and veterans of the pre- and post-9/11 eras. These hidden heroes, which include parents, spouses, children, extended family members, friends and battle buddies, are often overwhelmed. They face significant challenges including scattered resources, isolation, poor health and emotional stress. The MVCN supports caregivers of all ages, eras, and stages, offering peer support and access to partner organizations' resources and services, with the goal of increasing caregivers' connected-ness, hopefulness, wellness, knowledge, and skills.
