New York City is home to hundreds of veteran-serving organizations along with one of the most diverse veteran populations in the country. These resources are located throughout the five boroughs and offer a multitude of services for the city’s military connected population. However, due to the unique landscape of New York City, it can be difficult for veterans, service members and their families to identify and connect to the services that are right for them.
VetConnectNYC is a one-stop shop for services for you and your family. With over 80 vetted service providers and a coordination team dedicated to connecting you to the right services, VetConnectNYC takes the hassle out of navigating resources and benefits.
The process is simple: input or call with your information and the care coordination team at Northwell Health gets to work, matching you with the right services at the right time. What’s more, the coordination team will make sure you’re only matched with the services for which you’re eligible.
