We serve Veterans, military members, and their families, National Guard, Reservists and Gold Star and Blue Star families. We utilize our existing and ever expanding facilities and services across Connecticut to address the needs of the individuals in this unique community.
We are an affiliate program of Oak Hill, the largest non-profit serving people with disabilities in Connecticut. In operating as a program under the Oak Hill umbrella we coordinate closely with our other sister programs. As such, we have a depth of knowledge and physical resources unsurpassed by any other provider in the State. As a result of our formal agreement with, and being modeled after, other successful Veterans Count affiliates and service providers across New England, we are uniquely positioned to meet the ever growing needs of the military community. Additionally, we have leveraged the "best practices" of other Veteran organizations across the country and incorporated our own knowledge base to create what is quickly becoming known as “the destination” for Veterans, military connected individuals and organizations in Connecticut. Unlike other organizations, Veterans Count Connecticut is 100% community based. We have leveraged existing Oak Hill and community facilities to bring our programs and services to where the Veterans reside. No need to come to us... We'll come to you! Backed by Oak Hill means that we do not have to raise funds prior to providing our facilities or services. That means that we are already Veteran and military family ready acoss Connecticut today. Our Oak Hill owned facilities include but are limited to; the only 100% sports, fitness and adaptive training facility in New England, two expansive camps capable of providing lodging for over 150 individuals with or without physical challenges, multiple mental health service locations across the state and an aray of services already approved under the Veterans Administration’s - Veterans Choice Program. As an additional resource, the depth of our staff includes multiple Vietnam Era Vets, Blue Star families, VA Connecticut staff volunteer, Veteran board members and others deeply immersed in the military community. In light of the above, Veterans Count Connecticut is uniquely positioned to provide and expand upon our existing depth of resources for the Veteran and military constituency not only across Connecticut but potentially beyond the state borders through our ever growing cadre of partners.
We have multiple new and exciting initiatives underway! Presently with seven locations we are continuing to expand.
