Helping America's Most Vulnerable

Meet our Advisory Councils

Insight, expertise, and friendship

Our work on behalf of the veterans of Northern New England would not be possible without the help and
support of our Veteran Advisory Council — a team of community volunteers from all walks of life who
contribute their wisdom, time, and energy in helping us guide and expand our organization╩╝s programs
and services for veterans.

We could not do it without you. Thank you!
