OUR VISION: To create a healthy, compassionate, thriving community where no one is left behind.
Veterans Network United, Inc. (aka VETNETU, VNU) was conceptualized in February 2015 by a group of military veterans and allies interested in creating connectedness through community-wide volunteerism.
As members of VENETU, we pledge our commitment through the service of this organization to strengthen the community in which we live, by supporting the citizens with whom we interact, and addressing the issues that challenge our community's growth and development.
VNU is a unique opportunity that brings veterans together to continue service in a meaningful way through volunteerism. Our membership is a partnership between military veterans, their families, and community allies. Together, we share resources, skills, knowledge, and experience to bride the gaps that arise in our community.
The blended membership of veterans and community allies builds a powerful network of individuals committed to making a difference in the community and in each other's lives.
VNU’s 'Service after Service' model seeks to attract all veterans to continue their service through volunteerism with the intention of creating a renewed sense of purpose and belonging.
Providing the opportunity to assist veterans transitioning back into the community and out of isolation is our inspiration. VNU’s motivation is sustained by the comraderie and community building that its stakeholders, including the community and veteran allies, has created.
VNU is a federally-recognized 501c3 tax-exempt, Massachusetts non-profit organization.
