NYSID supports job creation efforts for service veterans through our member agencies and assists other veterans' support programs, promoting quality of life for veterans as they reconnect to the New York State workforce.

NYSID has hosted quarterly Veterans' Summits since 2009, providing an in-person clearinghouse for individuals and organizations supporting veterans with disabilities in New York State.

NYSID supports Battle Buddy Centers, which are safe havens for veterans to socialize with their fellow veterans and receive services they need. Visit http://www.battlebuddycenter.com.

NYSID also maintains a Veterans Contact Directory which lists veterans' service provider government agencies and not-for-profit organizations available in New York State counties.

We hope you find these videos and articles informative, and we encourage you to join NYSID in expanding veterans' outreach, employment and business initiatives.
