TAP Program


Transition Assistance Program (TAP)

The Transition Assistance Program (TAP) was established to meet the needs of separating service members during their period of transition into civilian life by offering job-search assistance and related services.

Fishers of Men for Veteran Ministries is a working part of TAP in the White Mountain Community. Fishers of Men for Veteran Ministries puts together a backpack with essential items for Transient Veterans coming into the White Mountain Community. These backpacks are given to all Police and Fire Departments in the White Mountains.  

Backpacks include a blanket, water, non-perishable food for several days, hygiene items, toilet paper and information on receiving assistance.  If the Transients would like housing assistance, Fishers of Men for Veteran Ministries will help them get into a shelter and will work toward helping them find permanent housing.

If you would like to know more about the backpacks, or if you would like to provide items to be placed in the backpacks, please contact Fishers of Men for Veteran Ministries for additional information.

All donations to Fishers of Men for Veteran Ministries are tax deductible and a giving letter is available upon request
