The National Veterans Intermediary (NVI) community survey is completed voluntarily by “collaboratives” -- cross-sector, community-based groups of varying types and configurations -- that commit to collaborate and learn with each other and NVI as we build the country’s capacity to address the needs and support the successful reintegration of our veterans. The results of this first-ever survey contribute uniquely to the nation’s growing body of knowledge about how American communities serve veterans, and in particular how stakeholders from the nonprofit, philanthropic, social service, public and governmental, business, faith, education, and other sectors can collaborate most effectively for impact.
NVI was established to anchor and impart collective purpose, strategy, and success to the very fast-growing but often hard-to-navigate veterans services landscape. By collaborating and partnering with and upholding the success of national partners that help NVI help local communities, NVI models and lives by the values of the “collective impact” methodology we champion and support at the community level. Two core principles guide both our work, and our presentation of data:
The charts below illustrate some of the earliest responses to our community survey, culled from the answers to 31 text-based questions posed to 33 NVI partner communities between July 2017 and December 2017. Where the “N” value is greater than 33, communities provided multiple or multi-part responses to questions.
As NVI’s network grows, we will expand administration of the survey and update the data. Sharing and leveraging the information gleaned from our local and national partners is a vital contribution to building knowledge about the veteran-serving landscape and expanding the networks of support for our military and veterans, their families, their caregivers and their survivors.
