ABOUT US

The Veterans Wooden Boat Workshop is an organization founded by Veterans located in New York’s Hudson Valley. We are dedicated to the well-being of Veterans and their families. Our mission is to bring much-needed programs into the area. This project is coordinated and led by Veteran volunteers and community leaders who donate their time and experience to help struggling Veterans reintegrate.

The Catskills are home to over 12,000 veterans and their family members. While veterans do have some access to programs that assist in homelessness, substance abuse, employment, and other basic needs, there is a serious gap regarding the veteran’s psychological wellbeing. This Workshop is a program that integrates cognitive behavioral therapy techniques and access to support professionals to help Veterans successfully reintegrate into society as well teaching a viable skill in woodworking and watercraft.
