Welcome to the Monroe County Veterans Service Agency

Veterans Helping Veterans: A Partnership of Monroe County Veterans Services Agency and CompeerCORPS

In New York, 22% of Veterans suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder and/or major depression. Many struggle to reintegrate into civilian life and their communities. Compounding this stress is a culture that gets in the way of asking for help. Isolation and and loneliness is often the result.

CompeerCORPS is a program of Compeer Rochester that employs the power of friendship to help Veterans. Since 2011, CompeerCORPS has supported Veterans who help fellow Veterans lead successful, productive lives.
