Veterans – We Are Here For You!
The Veteran Peer Access Network (VPAN) is a community-driven, peer-to-peer outreach program that helps veterans quickly access earned benefits and services. The Network deploys 80 trained Veteran and Military Family Peers throughout LA County, easing service members’ transition to civilian life by reducing or eliminating bureaucratic obstacles to care. VPAN offers advocacy and education, access to critical resources as well as limited mental health care treatment. The Network also hires qualified veterans, empowering those who have served our country.

VPAN works closely with programs run by the VA Greater Los Angeles Healthcare System, the VA Long Beach Healthcare System and community-based organizations, including the Los Angeles Veterans Collaborative. The Network aims to improve the hope, wellbeing and quality of life for LA County veterans and their families.
