The Military Veteran Caregiver Network provides our nation’s pre- and post-9/11-era military and veteran caregivers with peer support to reduce their isolation and increase their sense of connectedness, engagement, hopefulness, wellness, as well as their knowledge and skills.
The MVCN offers caregivers access to the highest quality peer support programs and services– online and in their communities– through collaboration with partner organizations, agencies and groups that share a commitment to reducing caregiver isolation.
The MVCN allows caregivers to offer one another support, understanding and encouragement. The focus is on America’s approximately 5.5 million caregivers of military and veteran wounded, ill or injured. Support is offered through three peer-based programs:
- Online Peer Support Community
- Online & Community-Based Peer Support Groups
- Peer Mentor Support Program
The MVCN helps caregivers of all ages and stages to include clinicians, partners and supporters. They provide access to three open caregiver-focused services:
- Resource Library
- Caregiver Master Calendar
- WeCare Newsletter
