Veterans’ Mentor Group is a group of Veteran Mentors, Veterans, and partners from within our communities who share and understand the unique experience of military service, military life, and the distinctive needs that may arise from that experience. We are brought together with the singular purpose to support the Outagamie County Veteran’s Treatment Court and to fill the gap in resources to make certain that our Veterans gain the assistance they need and have earned. We are a State of WI Charitable Organization and have received our Tax Exempt status from the IRS as a 501(c)3. All donations are Tax Deductible.
