Veterans Count, the philanthropic arm of Easterseals NH Military & Veterans Services (MVS), provides critical and timely financial assistance and services when no other resource is available to veterans, service members and their families, to ensure their dignity, health and overall well-being.
Veterans Count continues to ensure that 90% of every net dollar raised is spent to provide services and grow resources for NH veterans, service members and their families.
In 2007, Veterans Count was developed in partnership with Easterseals NH (ESNH), the NH National Guard, and the NH Dept. of Health and Human Services. The program provides services and resources to veterans of all eras and their families. MVS Care Coordinators work with individuals and families to create a care plan toward self-sufficiency. Since ESNH launched the program, over 17,500 individuals have been served. Philanthropic dollars, totaling more than $4 million, have been distributed to provide financial support for food, utilities, housing, transportation, fuel, and vehicle repair.
