You answered the call of service. We want to preserve your story. The NYC Department of Veterans' Services wants to capture the story of veterans who were inspired to serve after 9/11 or volunteered at Ground Zero following the attacks. Learn how to contribute your story to our oral history initiative, the Veterans Voices Project: nyc.gov/vetvoices.
The Veterans Advisory Board (VAB) will host its final virtual public meeting of the year on Wed, Nov 17th, at 6:00 pm! The VAB is a group of veterans appointed by the Mayor and the Speaker of the NYC Council to advise the NYC Department of Veterans’ Services on the best way to serve the City's veteran community. Veterans who participate in the VAB's public meetings help shape policy recommendations the VAB makes for the NYC DVS.
DVS has officially launched VetBizNYC, the City's first interactive map for veteran-owned businesses! New Yorkers can now buy locally while supporting those who served! Find veteran-owned businesses in your neighborhood or add your business to the map.
Volunteers are making supportive check-in calls to veterans across NYC through Mission: VetCheck. These calls provide veterans with information regarding vital public services, including free meals, information on COVID-19 testing and vaccination sites, and mental health resources. Learn how you can volunteer or request a check-in call for yourself or a veteran you know.
