Customers made direct donations to VNEOC with just a swipe of a credit card! We set up a "DipJar" automated system - allowing customers to choose a dollar amount, swipe their credit card, and depositing it right into the VNEOC account. We also provided simple and easy addressed envelopes for those who preferred that route.
Leaving the military and abruptly returning to civilian life is a challenge, with no job lined up, no immediate housing arrangements, and a loss or reduction in medical services previously available. Progress is complicated if there are issues with substance abuse, depression, anxiety, or other mental strains. VNEOC exists to help smooth out those hurdles, and get veterans back on their feet.
We invite you to view a video we made together, sharing what VNEOC and this event means to us personally.
VNEOC provides a continuum of care to Veterans and their families, including basic food and shelter, housing advocacy, counseling, peer support, case management, employment, and education. Services extend through Essex, Middlesex and Barnstable Counties in MA, and Rockingham County, NH. VNEOC has served 50,000 veterans since its inception in 1985. 700 or more veterans are placed in housing annually.
