VetDay Activity Center

Established in January 2001, this day program is among the most unique of all VNOC programs.  The program provides an environment where Veterans can participate in recreational activities, work training, group support, and other activities that are both satisfying and challenging.  This program is funded through the Veterans Administration & MA Department of Veteran Services as well as private donations.
