Secretary Mary Kolar of the Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs today
announced that the state agency will be working with the Simmy Foundation, a nonprofit
focused on veteran mental health, and the Wisconsin Petroleum Marketers & Convenience
Store Association (WPMCA) to increase awareness and enrollment of veterans in the
Department’s Veterans Outreach and Recovery Program (VORP).

“I am extremely proud of the effective and meaningful work done by the VORP staff,” said
Secretary Kolar. “Every day, they are meeting Wisconsin veterans where they are and
connecting them to vital services. I’m so grateful to the Simmy Foundation and the WPMCA for
their partnership in getting the word out about this incredible program. More visibility on VORP
could help so many more veterans, and likely save lives.”
