Mission Statement

The Military Veteran Peer Network is a networking site for organizations and people serving Texas Veterans and their families. Here, they can stay connected, share knowledge, post events, and develop best practices to help support Veterans as they make the transition to life after service.

With the peer-to-peer network, Veterans are given the opportunity to go through a training course that teaches them how to become peer mentors. Once trained, they are tasked with going out into their local communities and creating peer groups, social groups, or other avenues of peer mentorship.
