The NVI service portfolio includes tools for every type of community. A community with a mature collaboration network may benefit from an informed national voice, whereas a community just beginning its collaboration journey will benefit from learning and sharing and from collaboration funding. The communities listed below have committed to collaborate with NVI to build a national framework for veteran services.
Alaska Forget Me Not Coalition
Here is one of the challenges the Alaska Forget Me Not Coalition is tackling:
"Transportation is a huge issue in our state because most communities are not connected to the road system. Many service providers try to travel together or cross train in order to provide the most amount of services possible when traveling to remote areas."
New Mexico Community Veterans Engagement Board
The New Mexico Community Veterans Engagement Board sees these as the top needs of Veterans in Albuquerque:
"Understanding benefits, benefit application process, availability of services, mental and behavioral health access"
Southeast Michigan Prosperity Region
Survey in progress
Arizona Coalition for Military Families
"We focus on equipping people and organizations throughout our community with information and training. This includes roles as diverse as librarians and first responders to human resource professionals and faith-based staff and volunteers. The idea is that anyone can be an open to door to connect a veteran or family into the resource system."
Blue Ridge Veterans Community Partnership
“The rural nature of our community makes it challenging for Veterans to access resources and services and for organizations to effectively outreach to Veterans.”
Augusta Warrior Project
"Top needs of Veterans in the community are “prevention funds, affordable housing, transportation, and single parent with children-transitional housing.”
Greater Butler Community Veterans Collaborative Board
"We educate veterans, we conduct open forums, and help educate veterans about the services offered by the VA."
Lowcountry Veterans Engagement Team
"SCServes is the primary receiver of acute needs within the Veteran community. Behind them are LVET members from the Tri-County Veteran Support Network and the SC Army National Guard Family Program."
Piedmont Veterans Coalition
"As our primary mission to address systemic issues, we want to and ways to determine what these are and address them in a way that reduces the impact to our veterans."
Tristate Veterans Community Alliance
“We strongly believe that the system should not wait for a crisis before enagaging Veterans. Our Veterans Processing Center is set up as a "welcome center" geared for newly transitioning Veterans planning on accessing career and educational resources in the community. In addition to that we have a variety of non-service options including: quarterly Veteran storytelling events, monthly group volunteer days, and a regular presence at sporting events (especially the Cincinnati Reds).”
Peak Military Care Network
What is Peak Military Care Network proud of about Colorado Springs as it relates to Veterans?
"I am most proud of the work of our collaborative to work together and better coordinate services so those veterans and families do not get confused and have one place to connect for assistance that can offer them multiple services, as well as follow-up and make sure those multiple services meet their needs
Greater Miami Valley MyVeteran Community
“We host an annual Veterans Moving Forward event to connect Veterans with Services; Public Service Interviews; Speakers Bureau; Public Outreach; participation in the Dayton Region Military Collaborative; VetsLink – Vets resources database and 24/7 call-in referral system.”
