As a member of a collaborative or a group of organizations working together, there usually exist services that are provided for our population and subsequent impact. As part of this process, we must collectively ask how are we forming ideas, delivering services, creating delivery models, and finally, how are we implementing service delivery for Veterans.

Many collaboratives use a variety of stakeholders and information sources to clarify their longer-term intentions as a guide for improving service delivery.

The service delivery system most collaboratives are striving to build includes more coordination of services that can respond effectively to multiple, interrelated needs among the Veteran population.

At this time, there is no consistent, comprehensive strategy or local tactics to proactively connect to Veterans prior to their transition, assure a comprehensive, holistic assessment of needs, link Veterans to appropriate services and supports and help encourage and track progress.

“Having key access points aligned and meeting regularly through our workgroups helps ensure that Veterans and military families are aware of available services and directed appropriately.”
