Relaunch of Mission VetCheck!
It’s back! Our program to make sure our community has the most up-to-date information and care is back.
Mission: VetCheck is a partnership between New York Cares and DVS that leverages volunteers to make supportive check-in calls to veterans across the city. This vital outreach effort creates a crucial point of connection between Veterans and our community through phone calls that provide resources and information about public services, including free meals, housing resources, employment information, and mental health services. Most importantly, this initiative creates a way for New Yorkers to express their gratitude to our Veterans for their service to our country.
If you would like to receive a check-in call or would like to request a check-in call for someone you know, fill out the form on our website.
Mission: VetCheck should not be used to receive support in the event of a personal emergency or mental health crisis. If you are having thoughts of suicide or hurting others, or experiencing an emotional crisis, please call 911 or go to your nearest emergency room for immediate assistance. You may also call the Veterans’ Crisis Line at 988, then press 1, or NYC 988 by calling or texting 988.
