Northern Michigan Veterans Coalition
Posted By: Ryan Sanderson (June 2, 2020)
The (NMVC) Northern Michigan Veterans Coalition serves the 11 counties in Northeast Michigan. NMVC helps creates awareness about the needs of and the benefits available to veterans and their families by promoting communication, coordination, and collaboration. NMVC publishes a monthly newsletter to 3,407 Veterans and 156 Community Partners. NMVC Board Members personally assist the Veteran or their families in need of assistance by connecting with the appropriate NMVC Partner (business or organization) to resolve the issue. When all efforts are exhausted, or, the request is unusual, NMVC provides financial funding directly to veterans and their families. In 2019 and 2020 these included: rent and mortgage assistance, utility assistance, gas cards, household goods, furniture, appliance items, clothing, work attire, and vehicle repairs. NMVC hosted 3 (VBF) Veteran Benefit Fairs in 2019 and are scheduled to host one VBF in Gaylord in September 2020.
