Mission United

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 is a signature United Way of Long Island intiative dedicated to the support of veterans and their families in our community. One out of every five veterans on Long Island struggles to find a career path that will lead to financial independence. VetsBuild represents United Way of Long Island's commitment to addressing this problem by changing lives and building futures for our local heroes.


VetsHelpLI is an online resource and referral service for active military personnel and veterans.
