About Vetwork

Proudly serving those who served us.


The Ocean County POW/MIA Organization was incorporated on March 8, 1984. The Organization was formed to address Veterans’ issues such as employment, family stress, substance abuse, housing for the disabled, special needs for children of veterans, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder counseling. From 1984 to 1986, the Organization’s activities and services were conducted on a part-time, informal basis. In 1986 the directors established a program known as Vetwork to provide assistance to all honorably discharged veterans in the form of professional counseling for alcohol/drug abuse issues, PTSD, eliminating barriers to employment, supportive services, emergency shelter, homeless-prevention, food, claims for VA benefits and other entitlements, and transportation services. On November 12, 1988, the directors of the Organization changed the name to Vetgroup, Incorporated.


The Vetwork Program, now Vetwork, A Program of Vetgroup, Inc. is a not-for-profit, 501(c)(3) organization, and is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors. The mission and purpose of the agency is to meet the immediate and long-term needs of lower-income veterans. Vetwork provides supportive services to assist the veteran in securing/upgrading employment, obtaining permanent, affordable housing, and transportation to access all necessary medical or basic-needs services. We seek to provide a continuum of care with our services, and to enable veterans to maintain, or achieve, self-sufficiency. To accomplish this end we are committed to advocacy, education, and the prudent delivery of direct, quality services.

VA Assistance

Assistance with service-related disability claims and entitlements is a unique challenge, yet is often necessary in providing Veterans financial stability. Veterans like ourselves who have gone through this process can truly understand the uphill battle that it can be and may provide a unique perspective.
