Military Veteran Peers for Families

MVP is a free and confidential helpline designed to help veterans and their families. The helpline is dedicated to being an extra resource to assist our veteran families. MVP operates as a free and confidential support network for the family of veterans and active duty personnel. The helpline helps answer any question or concern a family member may have about veteran benefits and services.

Whether they are calling about a family member that is a veteran or currently serving over- seas, MVP is here to help. The MVP helpline works in conjunction with Vets4Warriors and NJVet2Vet programs. We would like to partner with your borough in an effort to provide community outreach for your veteran constituents and their families. The service is FREE & would be at NO COST to the town. Let us help spread the word about all the programs that are available to veterans in your community. All helplines lines are located in the call center of Rutgers University. The call is free and confidential. Thank you .MVP Flyer   MVP4Families-Power Point
