Your support will have a lasting impact on a veteran’s life and together, we can build strong communities around them.

Clinical services are a critical part of recovery, but social connections have become a lifeline for veterans impacted by service.

Without them, they can feel alone and misunderstood.

Our social groups are helping veterans and their families form new connections away from the military. In fact, 8 out of 10 veterans recently surveyed say that attending a Mates4Mates social connection activity has helped with their recovery.

Spending time with other veterans and their families, talking, laughing, and participating in activities that challenge them to go beyond their comfort zone, are all beneficial in improving and maintaining their mental health.

This Tax time will you be part of the support system that is helping veterans to build strength through community connection?

We don’t take the responsibility of providing support lightly - it’s critical to the wellbeing of veterans impacted by service and changes their lives.

But we can’t do it without you. 

With Mates behind you, there’s power to move forward.

Your generous gift will help our dedicated team of Liaison Officers, like Brie and Cody, to support veterans and their families to rebuild their community - making sure support is there when they need it most. With you by our side, we can reach more veterans impacted by service, helping them forge lasting relationships and build a pathway to recovery. 

Your support will have a lasting impact on a veteran’s life and together, we can build strong communities around them.
