Community Support

Navigating the sea of services and benefits is a top-cited challenge among veterans nationwide. Social sector organizations who serve veterans are also under increased pressure to demonstrate impact and collaborate. Our research examines leading practices among veteran-serving organizations and the ways in which communities mobilize to provide veterans and their families greater access to a comprehensive array of services and care.
