MVPN - Tarrant County

The Military Veteran Peer Networks' mission is to establish camaraderie and trust with each other, identifying and vetting community resources and, collectively, contributing to the communities where we live. The network connects veterans and their families to local, state, and national resources through an active group of veteran peers. As a member, you can meet other vets, get help and support, and find resources.

If you have served or are currently serving in our Armed Forces or are a family member, then this group is for you!
