Making friends, changing lives

About

CompeerCORPS matches veteran volunteers with veterans who are recovering from a mental illness. Our trained volunteers offer friendship and support to individuals struggling with isolation, depression, anxiety and other mental health disorders.

CompeerCORPS volunteers are unique: this is a veterans helping other veterans program. By giving this person the gift of friendship, you can serve as a support and mentor.

Volunteers get together with their match one hour a week (or four hours a month) doing activities both enjoy, such as watching a ballgame, going for a walk, or grabbing a cup of coffee.
