Connecting New Hampshire's Service Members, Veterans and their families to solutions
The Easter Seals Military & Veterans Services Creed:
We pledge to serve those who serve our nation with honor, integrity, and rapid response. We will always put our mission first. We will never give up. We will never quit. We will do whatever it takes to meet the critical needs of Service Members, Veterans, and their Families. We respect and appreciate the pledge they have made to serve. Because of their commitment we pledge to uphold these values in our service to them.
Easter Seals Military & Veterans Services, in partnership with Veterans Count, responds rapidly, efficiently and effectively to the unmet needs of Service Members, Veterans, and their Families to ensure that they can thrive in their communities.
Our Unique Approach:
We developed a one-of-a-kind Care Coordination program that provides, free, and confidential support designed to meet the unique needs of Veterans, Military Members and their families. The program works in conjunction with existing military, VA and community programs, and is an important part of the full range of Service Member/family support services available to you and your family.
Services are provided by experienced counselors who are familiar with a wide range of programs and services and have experience navigating "the system." They understand military culture, employment challenges, substance abuse struggles, and deployment-related issues. They are honored to serve you!
Sid’s Military & Veterans Services care coordinator offered a hand up to support him when he returned from deployment. Together, they addressed Sid’s unique challenges and helped him to take charge of his life again. Annually, Easterseals supports over 1,900 people through our Military and Veterans Services.

Anna, a disabled female veteran, entered the Easterseals VT Military & Veteran Services (MVS) program in the fall of 2017. Anna served in the United States Army in the late 1970s, and, suffers from service-related PTSD. She also suffers from severe anxiety; loud noises, groups of people, and unfamiliar places all increase Anna's anxiety. She does receive therapy and tries to be aware of her triggers. Anna is proud that she could serve her country regardless of the impact of her military service on her mental health and well-being. To read more about Anna, click here.
