About Weekend for Warriors
Weekend for Warriors is a four-day long excursion provided to four local combat veterans. Throughout the course of the weekend, our honorees will participate in different shooting and fishing activities at the premier preserves in Dutchess County, New York. Our honorees are carefully selected by our committee and demonstrate courage and commitment to not only their country, but also their community.
In 2016, our inaugural event raised thousands for the Hudson Valley Hero Project. With that money they were able to provide college scholarships, postage for many care boxes to local troops deployed overseas, equine assisted PTSD therapy, as well as a much-needed financial assistance for veterans throughout the region.
Since 2018, Weekend for Warriors has been proudly supporting the Dutchess County Vet2Vet program.Vet2Vet provides support, peer to peer services to assist veterans and their families in need and opportunities or activities to stay connected with other veterans. Vet2Vet is funded by the Joseph P. Dwyer Veterans’ Peer Services Project. Services include support groups, social activities, assistance in finding housing and/or employment for homeless veterans, advocacy for benefits, and much more:
- Emotional support
- Educational information
- Referrals to useful services
- Information around Support Groups, and Social Events
- Short-term care management
Weekend for Warriors is currently working to develop new ways to support these much need services during these difficult times. Although we are not currently able to offer the same program as previous years, we are working diligently to find alternative ways to honor and find resources for our local heroes.
