Veterans Connect Warren County

Meet Up with other veterans in this NEW program at the Y

The mission of Countryside YMCA is to uncover needs in our community and, when appropriate,  do all that we can to meet those needs. When we realized there was no local program for Veterans that included fitness opportunities, nutrition information, mental health support and comradery with other Veterans we decided to create that comprehensive program. We surveyed and interviewed local Veterans to better understand what's needed and the result is Veterans Connect: a FREE 12 week program designed specifically to meet the needs of local veterans. Participants will meet twice a week at the Y and focus on:

  • age-appropriate fitness programs

  • nutrition

  • mental health resources

  • team building

Any Veteran over the age of 18 is welcome. You do not have to be a member of the Y to participate.
