About The Program
Community Integration is a holistic veteran-focused, community-led initiative to proactively connect with all veterans, family members, and caregivers, therefore, ensure access to the resources and opportunities available in collaboration with local communities. We aim to cultivate integrated, resilient, and prosperous veteran communities across the country by improving veteran quality of life thus ending veteran suicide.
America's Warrior Partnership uses a one-size-fits-one method that improves a veteran’s quality of life with the upstream approach by combining the Community Integration model, utilizing the one of its kind study - Operation Deep Dive™, providing a national network of support through The Network, and listening to the needs and advocating on behalf of veterans through Mission Roll Call.
The Community Integration model amplifies local efforts by:
Bringing local veteran-serving organizations, community leadership, and business together to identify and bridge the gaps in available services.
Connecting local groups to national resources through America’s Warrior Partnership Network.
America’s Warrior Partnership works with communities to provide a framework for wrap-around service that both meets veteran needs and enhances the community’s stature and ability.
Any organization – from industry to government to nonprofit – may implement Community Integration to strengthen and empower their whole community
The Four-Step Plan
Proactively building a trusted relationship with veterans and connecting them to available resources or connecting communities with the tools and insights they need to support veterans.
Informing veterans of the opportunities available to them, as well as educating the community as a whole about the needs of veterans and their value to the community.
Raising awareness on behalf of veterans, their families and caregivers to ensure they receive the opportunity and support they need and to advocate for communities' commitment to supporting veterans.
Working together with veterans to create a holistic plan and collaborate with all offerings from the local community to regional, state and national resources to ensure the success of the veterans within the community.
