MVPN - Wichita Falls

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.

Our goal is to help active duty, reserves, guard, veterans and their family members who suffer from the effects of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), or Military Sexual Assault (MST), to connect with support available for them and the benefits they have earned. We assist in providing certified facilitators who are trained to help you.
