Commitment to Action

Improving Outcomes in Veteran-Focused Non-Profits

Commitment by

Veterans Innovation Center (VIC)

In 2011, the Veterans Innovation Center committed to consult with three non-profit organizations to improve collective abilities to solve key issues for 3.0 million warriors and families who return to their home communities each year. Returning service members face various challenges of reintegration, including securing meaningful employment, valued education, family harmony, and learning the life skills of the civilian world. In the most severe cases, returning service members can face psychological and physical challenges including confusion, fear, anger, loneliness, drug abuse, divorce, physical impairments, PTSD, TBI, homelessness, and even suicide. The VIC's efforts seek to mitigate these challenges.
