Office of Veterans Services

Nearly 5,000 veterans reside in Methuen, 500 of whom are disabled. Retired military, widow compensation and disabled veterans bring in $4 million per year to the City of Methuen. According to Massachusetts General Law, every city and town in Massachusetts that has a population of 12,000 or more must have a Veterans Officer.


Clear Path for Veterans New England is taking all necessary health and wellness precautions advised to address the COVID-19 pandemic. At the same time, we recognize the growing needs among local Military, Veterans and their families. Our first major initiative is the stand up and operation of two pop up empowerment centers to serve our clients. In partnership with the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation, we will be operating two centers, the first at our home base in Devens, MA and the second in Methuen, MA.

The distribution will be largely drive up and will closely follow COVID-19 guidance. The best place to connect with us is through social media and at to keep updated on our progress.
