Dutchess County is home to many veterans who have returned from bravely serving our country to a struggle finding housing and employment. The Dutchess County Regional Chamber of Commerce is proud to partner with Mental Health America (MHA) of Dutchess County and their Veterans’ Peer Service program Vet2Vet, which includes the Housing, Empowerment, Reassurance and Occupation (H.E.R.O) program, to help create a database of employers willing to help out of work veterans. Participating employers will be connected with the MHA H.E.R.O Program Manager for more information.
Funded primarily through Dutchess County, the goal of the H.E.R.O program is to promote housing and employment stability for our Local Veteran Families. Participants receive outreach and case management services, counseling, limited financial assistance and more. For complete information, see the official H.E.R.O brochure.
