The Citizens Veterans Advisory Committee's Mission is "To promote awareness of Veterans' needs and to identify proper resources for referrals that support those needs to change and enhance the lives of our Veterans".
To Serve
We are a group of concerned businesses, agencies, individuals and non-profit organizations striving to improve the lives of Veterans in Cape May County.
Our Work
We carry out our mission by focusing on three key issues concerning Veterans of all ages: Homelessness, Transportation, and Veterans Benefits.
Solving Problems
Other factors such as employment, health care, and education are related to the need for Veteran related resources and services to address them.

A Helping Hand

A Helping Hand

CVAC was created to help veterans and their families. We are a team of veteran and citizen volunteers dedicated to making a difference in the lives of veterans and their families in Cape May County. We have positioned our website as a “one-stop shop,” designed to easily identify available resources.

Our veterans re-enter a world very different from what they experienced in combat. As they re-enter civilian life they often need a helping hand in a variety of different arenas. CVAC is there as one of the organizations to help. We can provide immediate assistance, as well as offer guidance for a variety of long-term needs.

We welcome anyone who wants to join our group of 40 volunteers by contributing to the various committees we have set-up to help our returning military and their families. Please contact our Chairman Johnnie Walker HERE for volunteering options. We recognize and appreciate the sacrifices that have been made by our veterans and their families, as well as the challenges they face back on the home front. It is our turn to give something back to them. We love helping veterans and their families; will you please join us in contributing to our neighbors in Cape May County?
