The Veterans Wooden Boat Workshop is an organization founded by Veterans located in New Yorks Hudson Valley. We are dedicated to the well-being of Veterans and their families. Our mission to bring much-needed programs into the area.
While Veterans do have access to programs that assist with basic needs, there is a serious gap regarding the veteran’s reintegration. Initial interviews with at-risk veterans indicate they no longer feel a sense of purpose.
The Wooden Boat Workshop is a program that integrates Occupational therapy and access to support professionals. We assist with their reintegration into society. Most importantly, we give them purpose, dignity, and respect.
This project is coordinated and led by Veteran volunteers and community leaders who donate their time and experience to help struggling Veterans reintegrate.
