About

CompeerCORPS is a peer program that matches Veterans with other Veterans in supportive relationships. 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. Participants explore their strengths and challenges, navigating resources available to them. Not a Veteran? Please ask about mentoring a military child, spouse or caretaker.

More about the Compeer Program:

Compeer uses community volunteers to provide guidance and support to individuals who are looking to improve their well-being as a supplement to mental health treatment. For over 40 years, we have helped people in our community who are isolated and lacking socialization, all through the power of 1:1 mentoring relationships.
