The Gulf Coast Center is a member of the Military Veteran Peer Network (MVPN) www.milvetpeer.net
This network assists veterans and their family members connect to their peers and veteran service providers locally and state-wide.
Our program helps to recruit and train veteran volunteers so they can provide peer to peer support through veteran peer groups and individual mentoring. Community veteran reintegration services are offered by partnering with local veteran programs to make appropriate referrals. We also provide access to mental health professionals who have Military Cultural Competency through their military service experience or training.
Any veteran or family member interested in volunteering or participating in peer to peer support activities may contact:

Services For Vets
Connect Transit has a “vet van” and transit buses that travel through Galveston and Brazoria County to offer transportation to the VA Hospital in Houston as well as local transportation needs. Interested riders can call 1-800-266-2320 to make arrangements for transportation. There is a minimal fee for each trip.
The Veteran Task Force was formed in 2010 and meets quarterly with veteran service providers. This group has formed an effective network in which to share information and upcoming events.
