All veterans and their families have barrier-free access to the services they need to deal with challenges at home, to complete the transition to civilian life, and to achieve their goals and reach their full potential.
There are currently over 98,000 veterans in Western New York with more returning to civilian life every day. The Western New York area lacked a well-integrated provider network that could adequately serve the needs of these veterans and their families, making getting the support veterans need and deserve overwhelming and frustrating.
A coalition of independent service providers led by the Western New York Veterans Housing Coalition and Goodwill of Western New York joined forces to address the need and opened the Veterans One-stop Center of WNY in 2013 to jump start this landmark effort.
The need for the Veterans One-stop Center of WNY is apparent as members of our Armed Forces return home in higher numbers than ever before. New York has one of the highest veteran populations in the entire country with Western New York leading the count. The time is now to help the veterans, service members, and their families of Western New York.
With the strength and commitment of the One-stop’s founders and service providers and the support of the community, the Veterans One-stop Center of WNY will always be a welcoming place for our veterans to come home to.
