Supporting Our Veterans

Visions is committed to community, so we're dedicated to helping the veterans who make the way of life in our communities possible. You served your country, so now we're here to serve you.

We support several veteran organizations in the communities we serve, including Operation Homefront, Warrior Strong, and Clear Path for Veterans. We're proud partners of Syracuse University's Office of Veteran and Military Affairs, which is dedicated to helping vets find academic resources and professional advancement services they need to succeed. Each year, we host the Veterans Expo to connect vets with even more essential services. We proudly participate in the Veterans Benefits Banking Program (VBBP).

We believe veterans are a cornerstone of our communities, so we're here to help keep you strong through a variety of special services and programs just for vets and their spouses.*
