Mental Health Support

Our clients find committed and seasoned professionals who go beyond expectations and who are available to veterans and their families as often as they are needed. Our sessions are not limited to a given number or duration. The counselor’s schedule is what the veteran needs it to be at the moment.

Perhaps the highest testimony to our counseling program is the number of counseling clients who return year after year because of the acceptance and comfort level they feel and the progress they make while working with these compassionate and committed professionals.

Supportive Services For Veteran Families

The SSVF Program seeks to secure and maintain the housing stability of very low income veteran families. It provides first month and security deposits to homeless veteran families, and rental arrears to those who are in danger of homelessness. The program may also assist with moving expenses, licensed childcare, emergency housing and utility arrears if any of those expenses directly threaten housing stability.

For more information, please contact SSVF Program Coordinator, Dwayne Turmelle at 508-488-8347 or email

Food Pantry

We offer food pantry programs in Hyannis, Falmouth, Eastham, Vineyard Haven and Wareham plus delivery to homebound veterans. In FY 24 we fed more than 13,000 veterans and their families throughout the year.

These are the people in need who we dedicate 100% of our focus on because no veteran, or their family, should ever go hungry in our community.

Hyannis: 233 Stevens Street – Every Thursday, 9am – 6pm
Falmouth: AmVets, 366 Palmer Ave – 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month, 10am – 1pm
Eastham: Elks Club, 10 McKoy Rd – 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, 10am – 1pm
Martha’s Vineyard (Vineyard Haven): Steamship Authority Parking Lot – 3rd Wednesday of each month, 10am – 1pm
Wareham: Wareham Council on Aging, 48 Marion Road – Second and Fourth Wednesday MONTHLY, 11am – 1pm

In order to receive food, former military personnel must bring proof of their veteran status, such as a DD-214 (issued upon a service member’s retirement, separation, or discharge from active duty), and they must meet criteria for assistance as defined by The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP).
