$347,000 Grant Received for Work with Purpose

Creating and growing opportunities for veterans and military families to Work with Purpose.  Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services is honored to announce a $347,000 grant from a partner foundation.  This investment allows us to continue to grow our work with organizations assisting transitioning service members, veterans, and their families to achieve economic empowerment. At Dixon Center, we have one goal – to see every member of the military become a successful, contributing member of their community once they leave military service. A key factor in that success is what we call meaningful employment.  It’s not about having a job, it’s about a career.  Though our partnership and the foundation’s investment over the past year, Dixon Center has enabled 3,856 military-connected individuals to be trained, licensed/certified, and placed in careers in the utilities sector, building trades, transportation and maritime industries, and other industries.  As this partnership enters our eighth year, this grant will allow us to build on the success we’ve achieved in assisting thousands of veterans across the nation with the opportunity to work with purpose. If you are interested in learning more about our projects leading to Work with Purpose for veterans and their families and joining our partnerships contact Vanessa Stergios, Director of Development at vstergios@dixoncenter.org.
