WHO WE ARE.....
The Eastern CT Veterans Community Center is a safe, happy and positive space for veterans and their families. We opened our doors in June of 2021 and have touched the lives of nearly 800 of our country's bravest. The Center is a beautiful space where veterans can visit with each other, play a game of cards or billiards, share a cup of coffee, watch a movies or use our library.
Every Wednesday 50-70 veterans come for our Coffee House from 9-11:00 AM and enjoy the comradery and family connectiveness that has grown between our servicemen. Each week they enjoy different speakers, presentations and videos over coffee and breakfast. THE COFFEE IS CURRENTLY MEETING AT HOPS 44, 625 MIDDLE TPK, STORRS (THE OLD ZENNY'S RESTAURANT)
Veterans that need assistance with their benefits, housing, employment and even learning how to use a computer, can make an appointment to meet with the Windham VA Veteran Representative.
The Center is run completely by volunteers and donations. We collaborate with our partners to provide experts and care to meet our veterans needs. Our volunteers are incredibly strong advocates for veterans and we work closely with our municipal, state and federal lawmakers to make sure veterans are taken care of.
If you would like to know more or would like to volunteer, please contact us at 860-423-6389. You can text us or leave a voice message.
We have temporarily closed our facility at 1320 Main Street and are looking for a new home to continue to provide the services and support to our veterans. WE CONTINUE TO OFFER ALL OF OUR SERVICES! THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE HAS BEEN GENEROUS ENOUGH TO ALLOW US TO USE THEIR BUILDING AS WE SEARCH FOR SPACE. Our home needs a large meeting space with plenty of accessible parking. Please call if you have space that you would like to see used to honor our military and their families.
