The Erie Humane Society is proud to offer a grass roots initiative, the “Shelter to Service” program, by awarding a military veteran a highly trained service dog to provide support and companionship for their every-day life.

The first of two Military Share Events scheduled for November with Second Harvest Food Bank took place yesterday at the Erie VA Outdoor Pavilion. This program provides food to needy veterans and their families. Currently, these events are being held in 4 of the 11 counties that Second Harvest Food Bank covers across the commonwealth.
Thank You Again


The last of these events this year will be Nov. 27th at VMCE

Saint Vincent Hospital Helps VMCE

Saint Vincent Hospital’s All For One Committee collected items for the second year supporting the Veterans Miracle Center in honor of Veterans Day.


We wish to extend a hearty “Thank You”
for our community’s continued support.



It isn’t solely Veterans Miracle Center Erie assisting Veterans – local businesses, individuals, unions, non-profits and various Veteran organizations have joined hearts and hands to help provide basic life necessities to our men and women Veterans.  Many are low income Veterans who are struggling to provide for their families, or are disabled and in need of someone to offer a helping hand. 


A Veteran’s needs can be overwhelming. It is time to do everything we can to alleviate the stress and pressure on our Veterans.  By providing this help we believe we can lighten the load so many of them carry and offer guidance and assistance along the way. 



Veterans Miracle Center Erie provides humanitarian aid to our struggling men and women Veterans in the form of new clothing, hygiene products, housewares and more.  We also work with various Veterans organizations to assist the Veteran in need.


Were Here

“All gave some – some gave all.”  To you, a Veteran of the United States Military, these are not mere words but a reality.  To give yourself to defend and protect our nation cost you something – some paid the ultimate price, while others are left with broken bodies, a broken mind, or a broken heart.  The toll that war takes on a man echos far beyond the battlefield. We recognize the price you’ve paid then and now, and we sincerely thank you.  We thank you for what you’ve done for us, and now we’d like to give back to you.

Our service to you pales in comparison to the sacrifice you’ve made for the freedom we carry today, but it is our mission to see that Veterans and their families are recognized, cared for, and thriving.
