LEWISTON- There are many nonprofit organizations in the United States engaging in activities such as serving those who served. Now, Maine has a unique group of veterans who actively participate in a wide-range of community service projects and promote warrior resilience. Some veterans are mentors and coaches. Some help others as first responders in disasters. Others serve as passionate advocates. These veterans span across our state and join as one in Lewiston at Maine Veterans Community Service Projects.

Veterans in Maine are some of our greatest advocates. They lead from the front by drawing attention to issues impacting military veterans and their families. These issues include suicide, homelessness, substance abuse, hunger, lack of resources and poverty. Many Maine veterans believe that helping others results in lasting friendships, a sense of community, purpose and satisfaction.

Many find that volunteering and engaging in community service helps with reintegration and adjustment issues. It may also increase various skill sets or lead to employment. Volunteering helps others and promotes a good cause. That cause is taking care of our own and helping others.
