Suffolk County is home to more veterans than any of the state’s 62 counties. That means we have a special responsibility to help ensure that those who have served our country receive appropriate support when it comes to securing decent affordable housing, training and employment opportunities, mental health assistance, and other necessary services.

Founded in 1989 by Vietnam War veteran John Lynch, Suffolk County United Veterans (SCUV) initially focused on meeting the housing needs of the county’s homeless veterans. As the years passed, under Lynch’s dedicated leadership, SCUV’s mission would expand to include a broad range of support services, all dedicated to maintaining the dignity and self-sufficiency of returning Veterans.

Today, as a program of the Association for Mental Health and Wellness (MHAW), SCUV is even stronger, coordinating an interrelated and comprehensive set of services all aimed at integrating those who return from combat into civilian life. These services include:
