GENESEE VETERANS SUPPORT NETWORK (GVSN) is a coalition of agencies and individuals that seeks to understand the needs of the veterans in our community and to insure that our community has the resources to meet those needs. By reaching out to veterans of all eras in the community it is our goal to link veterans with existing services and to encourage the development of needed services which are not now available.
