This year’s NEK Veterans Summit has been made possible through a grant from the Vermont Veterans Fund and from the generous donations from our Contributors.


  • The Stand Down: The Department of Veterans Affairs will be hosting a one-day Stand Down in conjunction with the NEK Veterans Summit. Stand Downs provide services to homeless Veterans such as food, shelter, clothing, health screenings, VA and Social Security benefits counseling, and referrals to a variety of other necessary services, such as housing, employment and substance abuse treatment.
  • The Mobile Vet Center: Available throughout the Summit, the Mobile Vet Center is a 30 foot long bus and is operated by the White River Junction Vet Center. It provides readjustment counseling and information resources to combat veterans. Like community-based veteran centers, Mobile Vet Centers focus on services that help combat veterans make the transition between military and civilian life.
  • Exhibitor Booths: Over 50 Veteran Service Organizations will have information booths providing a one-stop-shop for veteran services, clubs, and resources.

The purpose of the summit is to bring veterans, their families, and veteran service organizations together to build relationships, stronger connections, and an enhanced regional support network in the Northeast Kingdom of Vermont and Northern New Hampshire.
