Brighton Marine, Veteran non-profit, commissioned a survey to conduct a needs assessment of Massachusetts veterans. The report’s goal was to examine which veteran needs were being met, what efforts were being taken to address them, and what kinds of collaborations were in place. The report looked at the landscape of veteran supports in Massachusetts, including public and nonprofit sector activities, as well as the unmet needs that were identified.
The estimated number of veterans living in Massachusetts is approximately 286,875, according to VA estimates. Here in Worcester County, there are over 62,000 veterans, who make up 7.5% of the population. ESMA Veterans Program and philosphy is praised for it's root cause approach to addressing many of these local needs.
