New Englanders Helping our Veterans (NEHOV) was founded in 2016 by Jim Collins to honor his best friend who had served in Vietnam and returned with PTSD. His friend succumbed to the invisible wounds many of our veterans face and took his own life. Jim decided at that moment that he wanted to devote his time to helping veterans in any way he could. Seven years later and ten board members strong, NEHOV assists veterans across New England with anything they need, from financial assistance to furniture and medical supplies.

The mission of the New Englanders Helping Our Veterans is to assist Veterans in need within the New England area and to give them easier access to the help. The organization strives to help Veterans with less criteria for them to meet in order to receive help.
