Programs for Veterans


Vet2Vet is funded by the Joseph P. Dwyer Veterans’ Peer Services Project. Services include support groups, social activities, we can also help Vets get their benefit claims back on track, and advise them on how to access their education benefits as well, and much more:

  • Advocacy
  • Educational information
  • Emotional support
  • Recovery Groups
  • Referrals to useful services
  • Short-term care management
  • Social Events (free for Veterans and their families)
  • Support Groups

The goal is to give you the opportunity to get out and enjoy the world. Join us for some healing through simple fun, all in the company of other veterans and their families who are facing similar challenges. Check the calendar below for more information.

Our Vet2Vet support groups are a safe place where you can listen, share, and spend time with people who know what you’re going through. Together, we aim to help everyone feel heard and share ways to build a thriving life! Support Groups take place bi-monthly, on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of every month, 3pm, at our Veteran’s One-Stop office in Pleasant Valley (see calendar below for more information).

The HERO Program is a way for Dutchess County veterans and their families that are either homeless or facing homelessness to have an advocate and a resource in the county they live in. There are funds available for emergency housing, which can be used if necessary to keep our veteran families safe and sleeping with a roof over their heads. To date, HERO has taken many homeless veterans away from street homelessness to stable housing status and has kept others from becoming homeless. This initiative is funded by Dutchess County.


The Veterans Employment Training & Transitions Assistance Program (VET-TAP) assists Dutchess County Veterans in all aspects of employment, including resume building, job hunting, job applications, interview preparation, etc. The program also offers local Veterans the opportunity to obtain licenses and certifications in various fields, to broaden their employment marketability. The goal of VET-TAP is to curb veteran homelessness through meaningful employment. VET-TAP is a Dutchess County funded program that works hand-in-hand with the H.E.R.O. Program for housing assistance.
