CompeerCORPS: A Vet-to-Vet Program
Compeer Rochester, Inc.
CompeerCORPS is a peer program that connects Veterans with other Veterans with the purpose of providing a network of support. A volunteer of this program acts as a friend, role model and advocate to a fellow Veteran, engaging in community-based activities on a consistent basis. Some volunteers may choose to also serve in our Vets Driving Vets program that assists area Veterans by providing transportation to medical appointments, shopping, errands, etc. If you are a Veteran and want to engage with other Veterans our program might be a good fit for you. Please contact us for more information.
