RILC Veteran Peer Mentors Graduate In Stony Point On Veterans Day

STONY POINT, N.Y. — The PFC Joseph Dwyer program will graduate the third Rockland Independent Living Center (RILC) class of trained Veteran Peer Mentors.

The graduation takes place from 8 to 10 a.m. on Veterans Day, Wednesday, Nov. 11, at Stony Point Center, 17 Cricketown Road, Stony Point. Veterans Day also will be marked.

RILC Executive Director George Hoehmann will officiate. North Rockland ROTC will present the colors at the beginning of the ceremony.

The goal of RILC’s Peer 2 Peer program is to match veterans who have been through the training program with those vets who are newly returning from service. The hope is the interaction will help reduce or even eliminate the negative impact that trauma-related symptoms have on social, occupational and family functioning.

“Matching program graduates with returning vets facilitates the healing process thanks to the immediate empathetic connection between both individuals,” said Hoehmann.

Meetings are free, confidential, and provide veterans with a safe place to share in a non-judgmental setting. The program also offers services specific to women Veterans and referrals for a variety of services.

More information about how to get involved can be found at the RILC website or by calling 845-624-1366.
