Welcome to Purple Star Veterans
Exiting from military service and transitioning into civilian life can be difficult, but you aren’t alone. Purple Star Veterans and Families is here to assist in charting a new path.
Purple Star Veterans is a program of Purple Star Veterans and Families (PSVF) a 501c3 community service organization. Our focus is on creating an atmosphere of support and advocacy by providing transition assistance through our Purple Star Peer Advisors, self-development tools and resources. We also offer qualified referrals to a growing national network of Veteran mentoring organizations.
We are Advisors, Advocates, & Partners
Purple Star is the initial point of contact that provides Veterans with immediate support via trained peer advisors and transition tools and resources. We then partner with and refer to existing mentoring organizations and Veteran resources; acting as a bridge and advocate by referring Veterans in need of ongoing support.
Purple Star Veteran Peer Advisors are not licensed mental health professionals and do not provide mental health counseling. Our assistance to serve fellow Veterans is not, nor is it intended to be, a substitute for professional medical advice. Always seek the advice of your physician or other qualified health provider with any questions you may have regarding a medical condition.
If you or someone you know is in crisis and has an immediate need for assistance, please call the DOD/VA Crisis Line at 1-800-273-8255 or Military OneSource 1-800-342-9647
