Our Mission

Recognizing the responsibility of communities to help those who serve, Clear Path for Veterans empowers service members, veterans, and their families through supportive programs and services in a safe, respectful environment.

We are a community based non profit 501(c)(3) organization founded in 2011 in rural upstate New York. Our mission revolves around connecting our Veterans to their communities through wellness, peer support, community outreach and education. We do this by accepting our role and responsibility in caring for those who’ve served. Founded on principles and values of traditional warrior culture, Clear Path’s model of reintegration mirrors traditions hundreds of years old.

Our Partners

Our collaboration with like-minded organizations provides an accurate and varied list of recreation, civic/government, education, VA and other support programs available to veterans and their families.
