Forchelli Deegan Terrana LLP sponsored a 6 week Strength and Conditioning Program at the Omni Fitness Center in Uniondale. The Center is in partnership with the Hempstead PFC Dwyer Vet2Vet Peer Program. The program assists Nassau County Veterans with support in assimilating back into civilian life.
Vet2Vet is a national model of peer mentoring. The program is comprised of small groups of Veteran’s who meet weekly to bond, connect, share resources and support.
Nassau is one of 15 New York State Counties that are participating in the PFC. Joseph Dwyer program, which provides Veteran Peer Support. Groups maintain confidentiality and are open to veterans of all generations, regardless of discharge status. Groups are co-facilitated by a diverse team of fellow veterans who have been trained in providing veteran peer support.
