Serving Those Who Served Our Country
Mission United is a critical program supporting United States military veterans and their families as they transition to civilian life. Mission United focuses on employment services, education, financial services, health and housing support. The need for these services is particularly significant on Long Island as we have more than 135,000 veterans living in our communities, 4,700 of whom have entered the service since September 11, 2001.

VetsBuild represents United Way of Long Island's commitment to addressing this problem by changing lives and building futures for our local heroes.
