Mission: To provide critical assistance to Veterans, National Guard Reservists, and Gold and Blue Star families and their caregivers, to help ensure their dignity, health and well-being.
Why We Do What We Do
We are an affiliate program of Oak Hill, Connecticut's largest private provider of services to people with disabilities. In operating as a program under the Oak Hill umbrella we coordinate closely with our other Oak Hill 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. As an additional resource, the depth of our staff includes multiple Vietnam Era Vets, Blue Star families, VA Connecticut staff volunteers, Veteran board members and others deeply immersed in the military community. 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.
