Maine Veterans in Need
Maine Veterans in Need

The Mission

Our MISSION is to assist veterans and their dependents who are in need, to advocate for those in active crisis/emergency, to prevent homelessness, and to help those who are homeless to transition into stable housing.

Existing government funded programs have specific contractual requirements that do not always meet the needs of the veteran. Most of these contracts do not require 24/7 availability. And many require a process that takes time and have administrative processes that delay the ability to provide the needed services. MVN, taking no government funds, does not have the administrative requirements of other organizations and provides the services after an initial review of the need and usually meets the need quickly and efficiently. As many of the MVN members are the organizations that have the government funding, MVN is in a position to connect the veteran with the appropriate agency that can meet the long-term need.

EXAMPLE OF SERICES WE HAVE PROVIDED

  • Food Cards
  • Gas Cards
  • Hotel room rent during times that other agencies aren’t available
  • Phone cards and Trac phones
  • Assisted in enrollment with VA Healthcare
  • Assisted in the process of obtaining a used car for a veteran leaving a homeless situation through the Maine Veterans Project organization
  • Made payments on:
    • Phone bills (to prevent phone disconnect)
    • Car payments (to prevent repossession)
    • Home heating fuel
  • And more.

Most of these services were provided during weekends, holidays, and when no other agency or funding source was available.

Preserving the 65 Year History of Hunting Submarines
Poised just hundreds of feet from the icy North Atlantic, with a legacy of over 65 years of relentless vigilance, Naval Air Station Brunswick, Maine, carved a unique place in US and Naval history and played a critical role in maritime patrol aviation world-wide.  With important contributions during World War II, Vietnam and the Cold War, and with squadron deployments to Korea, the Far East, Europe, North Africa and the Middle East, tens of thousands of sailors trained and flew from Brunswick, often in harm’s way and usually out of the limelight.
At this moment in time and history, as Cold War memories fade and photographs, films and verbal narratives lose their relevance or disappear altogether, it is critically important that we collect, consolidate and conserve the thousands of facts, artifacts, stories and historical incidents that tell the complete story of U.S. maritime patrol aviation.

Operation Red Shield is a program run through the Salvation Army’s Northern New England Division. This program has been designed to provide services for U.S. Military members, Veterans, and their families. ORS is a case management program that is committed to filling the gaps in the existing Veteran-related social service programs. Our case managers are committed to fulfilling any unmet needs by assessing any underlying issues that are ultimately leading to more struggles. Some examples of these issues are financial instability, substance abuse, and mental or physical health conditions. FMI contact Jeremy Kendall at Jeremy.Kendall@use.salvationarmy.org, or 207-245-3763. https://easternusa.salvationarmy.org/northern-new-england/operation-red-shield/

Vet Centers are community-based counseling centers that provide a wide range of social and psychological services, including professional counseling to eligible Veterans, service members, including National Guard and Reserve components, and their families. Counseling is offered to make a successful transition from military to civilian life or after a traumatic event experienced in the military. Individual, group, marriage and family counseling is offered in addition to referral and connection to other VA or community benefits and services. Vet Center counselors and outreach staff, many of whom are Veterans themselves, are experienced and prepared to discuss the tragedies of war, loss, grief and transition after trauma.
