Our Mission

Partnering with Communities to
Prevent Veteran Suicide

Our mission is to partner with communities to prevent veteran suicide. Our programs accomplish this by starting at the community level and understanding the unique situations of veterans and their families. We connect local veteran-serving organizations with the appropriate resources, services, and partners that they need to support veterans, their families, and caregivers at every stage of veterans’ lives. Our ultimate goal is to improve the quality of life for veterans and to end veteran suicide by empowering local communities to serve them proactively and holistically before a crisis occurs.


Our upstream approach to veteran empowerment is a four-step plan to Connect, Educate, Advocate, and Collaborate with veterans, their families, caregivers, and the communities that support them.

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.

Why We Serve

Veteran suicide is a tragedy impacting the family and the entire community. Suicide has been a multi-generational issue that has not been accurately addressed on many levels – societal, governmental, and organizational, which has resulted in a lack of practical solutions to identify and solve what is causing veteran suicide.


America's Warrior Partnership (AWP) leads this work through relationships with communities to serve the veteran, their families, and caregivers. By fostering and building these relationships, we help to make the connections at the local level.


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.

"As our programs continue to grow on a national scale, we have never lost sight of our core mission at the community level. Alongside our official affiliates, there are more than a dozen communities and hundreds of individuals contributing to the mission of America’s Warrior Partnership.

We hope you will join us in closing the gaps between national resources and local service providers to ensure veterans, their families and caregivers are empowered to thrive at every stage of their post-military lives."
