WELCOME MVPN VOLUNTEER!

 

The Gulf Coast center provides an essential service to the community veterans through their Veteran Support Services. 

 

The Veteran Services Department of the Gulf Coast Center is a grant funded program covered under House Bill 2392 An Act relating to the Mental Health Program for Veterans.

 

The Veterans Services department makes up the Gulf Coast Chapter of Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN).

 

Our network assists veterans and their family members in connecting to their peers and veteran service providers locally and state-wide.   

 

Our program also helps to recruit and train veteran volunteers so they can provide peer to peer support through veteran peer groups and individual mentoring. 

 

Community veteran integration services are offered by partnering with local veteran programs to make appropriate referrals. 

We are also members of the Veterans Treatment Court Mentoring team.

We thank you for volunteering your time and continuing service as we continue a legacy of Vets Serving Vets!

Veteran Volunteer Coordinator: Heather Melton

May be contacted at:(409) 944.4437 ext. 10052 or HeatherM@gulfcoastcenter.org

Michael S. Caballero wrote on the Chapters: Galveston wall: Veterans, do you have iussues dealing with your past expericnces? Do you want to talk with like minded Veterans who have similar experiences? There are Peer Support Groups in the Galveston region that provide "Listening ears" for Veterans to talk about their experiences and their emotions without judging. There is a group is dedicated to helping Veterans and Active Service members challenged with transitioning between Military and Civilian life. It is open to anyone who served at anytime. They meet weekly on Thursday night at the Bay Harbour United Methodist church in League City from 6:30 - 8 pm. Directions and more information about the group can be found at www.transitionplus.org
