Miami Vet Center!!!!!





The Miami Vet Center actively promotes their
services by reaching out directly to the Veterans and
their families. They do this by attending numerous
Veteran social activities, attending Drill Weekends,
welcome home celebrations, etc. They also contact
news organizations and magazines, publish articles
in veteran organizations newsletters, design, print
and post flyer's and posters in all area's that
Veterans and their families may frequent. Contact
schools to offer opportunities for volunteers and
educational training programs. Establish both
individual and group counseling and support
meetings in numerous locations in South Florida.
They work with the Veterans Association to
coordinate efforts and assure that as many outreach
opportunities are attended as possible. Contact local
businesses to find job opportunities for Veterans and
their families. Organize information in a cohesive
manner to help the Veteran in all areas of his/her life.

They serve Veterans at the Vet Center In Miami and
at the Oakland Park VA Outpatient Clinic. Also at the
Key Largo Outstation and the Homestead Outpatient

There is always something going on and never
enough time or staff to do it as well as we would like
too. If you have time, and wish to volunteer, please
give us a call, send an e-mail or fill out the request
form and send it to us. We always have things to do,
from stuffing envelopes to distributing posters, to
making phone calls to baking cookies for our
outreach events. We need all the help we can get!!!

Thank you!
