Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services was founded in July of 2012.
Leading up to the start of Dixon Center for Military and Veteran Services, The Office of Warrior and Family Support did due diligence advocating for the creation of a “Center” – outside of DoD – that will be a resource for those wanting to support veterans and their families but aren’t sure how.
Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services is a member of The Fedcap Group.
The Fedcap Group, a global network of top-tier nonprofit agencies, serves as the chassis for Dixon Center, as our parent organization. We operate as a program subsidiary of Fedcap Rehabilitation Services and are a 501c3 organization, and an IRS-qualified public charity, EIN 13-5645879 and donations are tax-deductible as allowable by law. Donations in support of Dixon Center can be made here.
We’re a national organization, with a local presence through our thousands of community partners. Our administrative offices are located at The Fedcap Group, 633 Third Avenue, 6th floor, New York, NY 10017.
Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services is a resource for individuals, organizations, and communities interested in the long-term wellbeing of our veterans and their families. We use our influence, ideas, and actions to assist other organizations, who in turn integrate veterans and their families into their local activities.
We are the capacity builder, not a direct service provider. We don’t ask organizations to create new programs. We invite them to include veterans—and their families—in what they already do.
We exist to reduce redundancies and increase the impact by partnering with organizations from all sectors of society – across the nation to develop, operate and sustain programs for veterans and their families.
By engaging with more communities, working across all sectors of society, and helping local organizations build and expand their capacity, we create truly transformative change.
We work at local and national levels and focus across three pillars:
Work with Purpose – Creating pathways to careers where veterans earn a family wage, have affordable healthcare, and benefits. Careers that allow veterans to set and meet their future goals.
Heal with Honor – Developing holistic solutions that focus on the eight dimensions of wellness: mental, physical, social, environmental, occupational, spiritual, intellectual, and financial; ensuring that veterans and their families, not only survive, but thrive.
Live with Hope – Accessing affordable housing—living in a safe, secure, and comfortable environment in harmony with a local community where a veteran can function independently and contribute to society as a private citizen.
Dixon Center takes its name from an American hero, Army Staff Sergeant Donnie Dixon. He was killed in action while serving in Iraq in 2007, dying as he had lived—an inspiration to those who served with him. Dixon Center isn’t named in memory of Donnie. It’s named to honor his values—loyalty and duty, respect and honor, integrity, and courage. Qualities that America’s military holds dear.
