Our Mission

Veteran Help Point is a 501C3 nonprofit serving the rural veterans across America by connecting them to resources and community.

 

Our mission is to provide support and assistance to veterans who live in areas where services are limited. We believe that every veteran deserves access to the resources and support they need to live a fulfilling life after their service.

 

Our team is dedicated to helping veterans find the help they need, whether it be healthcare, housing, employment, or education.

 

We work closely with other veteran service organizations and community partners to ensure that our veterans receive the best possible care and support. Join us in our mission to serve those who have served our country.

What We Do

We recognize that searching for help can be daunting. The major resources that offer help only guide you to national hotlines or other national resources which are largely overwhelmed.

Our organization does the searching for you. We seek out resources state by state that work on a local or regional level. Then we reach out to these organizations and talk to them about their work and missions. If they are a good fit for the website and agree, we then list them on our page.

Our interactive map allows veterans and caregivers to find local, virtual, and national resources. Categories range from mental health to housing to job assistance and many things in between. All resources are either entirely veteran-focused or have vast experience working with the veteran community.

Plus with the launch of our community, we are now able to connect rural veterans both locally and across the country. Allowing these men and women to know that they are not alone no matter where they are.

Meet Chris and Michelle Lang.

After serving 8 years of active duty in the Army, Chris made the decision to pivot his career and head for civilian life. In 2019 they moved back to their home state of Pennsylvania to start a new chapter.

Shortly after beginning civilian life, things started to quickly change. They were expecting their second son and their lives were launched into chaos. Chris had some medical struggles and reached out to the VA but that unfortunately wasn't an option at the time. 

By the time Chris was on the mend, Michelle and Chris started discovering a multitude of other organizations that were out there that could have helped them get through the rough patches a little more gracefully. Once they started asking the right questions and looking in the right places it was apparent there was not a lack of resources available.

 

Michelle was angered that more people didn’t know about these resources. What about those veterans who don’t have someone to advocate for them or aren’t as tech savvy? When the dust started to settle, they realized that something needed to be done about this problem too many vets face.

 

Through their journey, the idea of Veteran Help Point was born.  They didn't want to create just another database of organizations or a link tree, but a place that veterans are directed to the groups that can most specifically meet their needs and offer the help they are seeking. We can promise you that you are not doing this alone.
