Finding Local Partners: Serving America's Veterans
Check out the organizations already doing good work in your community. Many existing service groups have identified community needs and built the expertise to provide solutions. Get plugged in with them!
It will be helpful to provide background on the local service landscape to the attendees of your house meeting. A few phone calls can produce all the information you need to know about your options.
- Search your local military families or veterans organizations.
- Ask them how volunteers can bring value (use script below).
- Connect online with your local VA.
- If none of these organizations exist in your community, contact your state’s Veterans Affairs Office to begin your own volunteer group to fit local needs.
