Veterans Helping Veterans


V V A Chapter 952 is a group of Veterans and their families who actively help Veterans by providing a “helping hand up and not a hand out.” We help Veterans of all wars, spouses, and friends by providing mentoring, friendship, and information. We actively help the homeless Veteran community as well as community networking. Our goal and mission is to support Vietnam Veterans, their families and future generations for all that served their country. Join us as we make a difference in the lives of Veterans, and veteran families.

V V A Chapter 952 teamed up with United Way to help a veteran in need.
