The Veterans Wooden Boat Workshop is dedicated to the well-being of Veterans and Community through purpose, dignity, and respect.
The Veterans Wooden Boat Workshop envisions an Organization, nationally recognized, that is steadfast on the reintegration of Veterans, inspiring selfless service and community involvement.
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 well being. 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.
The program is fluid and constantly evolving. It is critical we stay up to date with current trends in veteran reintegration techniques and available resources that will keep the program viable and relevant. This can only be done by working with the community.
The ultimate goal of the program is to be put out of business, we look forward to the day that the military develops the proper tools to out process these men and women and give them what they need to reintegrate. Until that day, we will be here for them. If you’re interested in learning more about the program, volunteering, or know of a veteran in need, please take a moment and reach out to us.
