“Addressing the needs of veterans and their families begin in the communities where they live.” Colonel (Ret.) Sam Whitehurst, VP, Programs & Services, Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services.
Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services’ approach is built around the idea that the most effective solutions to the challenges that veterans and their families face are bottom-up driven. They start in the local communities where veterans and their families live and they are initiated by local leaders who best understand the needs of veterans in their communities. They provide veterans and families in their communities the inspiration, mentorship, resources, and focus to ensure they succeed in post-Service life.
Since it’s inception, the Center has identified, partnered, and through our influence, ideas, and actions, empowered community-based organizations, increasing and scaling their impact. Whether it’s organizations that are supporting the needs of young Army familes at Fort Liberty, NC or organizations raising awareness and education about veteran suicide in southern California, Dixon
Center for Military and Veterans Services knows that the solutions the challenges that veterans and their families face doesn’t originate in Washington, D.C., but comes from the communities where veterans and their families live.
