What it is

As a veteran, you can request a supportive check-in call from a trained volunteer through Mission: VetCheck. Check-ins give you one-on-one support and help you get information on accessing vital public services like:

  • mental health resources
  • free meals
  • COVID-19 vaccine locations
  • housing
  • emergency financial assistance

VetCheck check-ins are not a substitute for immediate or life-threatening concerns. For acute needs, volunteers can connect veterans to the Department of Veterans’ Services outreach team who can provide more intensive support.

Who it’s for

Mission: VetCheck is available to veterans across New York City.
