Certificate Program

Why Community Integration?

America’s Warrior Partnership has created a proven model, The AWP Community Integration Model, to proactively connect with all veterans, family members, and caregivers, therefore, ensuring access to resources and opportunities are available in collaboration with local communities. This Community Integration model has been used by communities across the country to serve more than 56,000 veterans and more including family members and caregivers. The result is a thriving community that is able to proactively support veterans improving their quality of life and increasing protective factors to end veteran suicide. The model is simple, but dynamic and customizable based on the community and the veterans they serve.

The Importance of Completing the Community Integration Competency Certificate Program

To achieve the mission of America’s Warrior Partnership, to partner with communities to prevent veteran suicide, it is vital that veteran support organizations are trained and understand the proven holistic model of Community Integration as applied to the support of veterans within a community’s ecosystem. The Community Integration Model provides structure and support to enhance existing local efforts so those directly serving the veteran population can focus on proactively building relationships and strengthening the network of universal support. With more than 45,000 non-governmental organizations throughout the nation existing to serve veterans and their families, and caregivers, the need for effective community-based programs is critical. To promote excellence in veteran support across the US, America’s Warrior Partnership has established the Community Integration Competency Certification Program.
