Veterans Looking for Support

Veteran Resources

As a Veteran, you might experience difficult life events or challenges after leaving the military. We’re here to help no matter how big or small the problem may be. VA has resources to address the unique stressors and experiences that Veterans may face.

Make the Connection is a one-stop resource where Veterans and their family members and friends can explore information on life stressors and mental health symptoms. Visit this website to hear stories from Veterans on the challenges they faced when transitioning from the service and how they addressed related mental health concerns.

Military OneSource

This resource offers a wide range of individualized consultations, coaching, and counseling to help warrior guardians, military families, and the entire global military community to live the best possible military life.

Access Military OneSource 24/7 online or by phone at 1-800-342-9647.

National Call Center for Homeless Veterans

If you are or know a Veteran who is homeless or at risk of becoming homeless, you may contact the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans. The call center is also available to Veterans’ family members and friends, VA medical centers, VA partners, community agencies, and service providers.

National Resource Directory (NRD)

The NRD was developed through a partnership among the departments of Defense, Labor, and Veterans Affairs. This directory provides Service members, Veterans, and their families access to services and resources at the national, state, and local levels to support recovery, rehabilitation, and community reintegration.

Use this site to get support that is designed specifically for you. If you’re a family member or friend you can also find resources that are designed specifically for the Veteran in your life.
