The Center

Platoon 22 and Goodwill Industries of Monocacy Valley are building a new veteran services center that will be a comprehensive resource serving veterans and their families.

The center will be home to more than a dozen staff and strategic partners, all committed to eliminating the oftentimes frustrating bureaucracy that is a barrier to the veteran and their family in receiving their much-deserved, hard-earned benefits.

Through classes, counseling, and veteran benefits navigation offered at our veteran services center, warriors and their families will receive the support they need to ensure a smooth and rewarding transition into civilian life. Among these services, the center will assist individuals in obtaining and maintaining meaningful employment.

In addition, a significant amount of focus will go toward intervention and support to veterans and their families who require mental health solutions. Every day in America, roughly 22 veterans die by suicide. The center will raise awareness for the suicide epidemic among veterans.

The Need

With more than 400,000 veterans living in the state of Maryland and 100,000 veterans living in Frederick and the immediate surrounding areas, be a part of serving those that served this nation as they overcome obstacles to reach their fullest potential.

Partnering for Good

Goodwill Industries of Monocacy Valley has created space within its new campus for a dedicated veteran services center. Platoon 22 has been identified as a founding partner of the new veteran services center.
