CompeerCORPS is a veteran-to-veteran program serving military veterans through supportive relationships to help in their transition to home, family, and community. Our mission is to use the healing power of friendship to improve the lives of our veterans who are striving for good physical and mental health and overall well-being. CompeerCORPS vet-to-vet programs have been supporting our nation’s veterans since 2010. We are now in several locations in neighboring states. With over 30 Compeer affiliates throughout the U.S., our goal is to expand the reach of our CompeerCORPS vet-to-vet program and help serve and give back to as many veterans as possible! Our program is adapted from the Compeer Model, an evidence-based, nationally-recognized, and award-winning model for mental health recovery.
Our runner Rachel has served as an AmeriCorps VISTA with CompeerCORPS for over two years now, and has committed herself -- with passion and compassion -- to reaching out to and engaging veterans and their families in our programs. Personally inspired by the veteran community, Rachel will be running the 2014 Marine Corps Marathon in support of CompeerCORPS.
The goal of $2,500 is significant because it is the cost of start-up for one CompeerCORPS program. By donating to a program that works tirelessly to support veterans, your help and support directly impacts the lives of veterans.
Thank you for your support with keeping CompeerCORPS running!
