New Report: Supporting Our Region's Veterans

Monday, June 9, 2014

WRAG members the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia, in partnership with the United Way of the National Capital Area and with pro-bono support from Deloitte Consulting, has released a new report entitled, "Supporting Our Region's Veterans: Assessing the network of services available for post-9/11 veterans and their families in Northern Virginia."

From the press release:

"The basic findings of this three-year study indicate that although veterans in our area are well supported at the macro-level with access to a wide variety of government and nonprofit services, there are several ways that the local philanthropic sector can target its dollars to better support the needs of Northern Virginia’s veterans at the micro-level. Veterans in particular find services to be overly complex and sometimes difficult to access. Greater coordination between government and nonprofit providers to create a seamless web of services would improve the lives of veterans and military families."
