PFC JOSEPH P. DWYER

PEER SUPPORT PROGRAM

Honoring the memory of PFC Joseph P. Dwyer and his legacy of service, the mission of our PFC Joseph P. Dwyer Peer Support Program is to empower veterans and their family members to find passion, purpose and hope as they transition from military to civilian life. 

 

The PFC Joseph P. Dwyer Peer Support Program brings United States Armed Forces veterans, service members and their families together through veteran-to-veteran collaborative services, social activities, and community service, easing the transition from military to civilian life.

The statement “We are Dwyer” exudes great strength in reflecting the heroic actions and bravery of PFC Dwyer, and also in our mission to step-up in caring for and supporting our veterans. We can relate to Dwyer’s struggles and experiences, and also takes a strong stand in that we can step forward to assist others in dealing with those struggles; just as he did in carrying that child to safety and throughout his deployment as a combat medic. 

 

This program is supported by the New York State Senate as well as the Erie County Department of Veterans Services, the Niagara County Department of Veterans Services, the Erie County Department of Mental Health and the Niagara County Department of Mental Health.
