Heal With Honor

“Dixon Center provided training and ideas to organizations who assisted me with my credit repair and in buying my home, and who care about me and my family.”

Jennifer Grubb, Army National Guard Veteran

No question, some veterans face tough challenges— some a result of trauma. America has seen an epidemic of veterans dying by suicide, a sharp rise in opioid addiction, and other serious health issues impacting those touched by military service.

But Dixon Center rejects the narrative of the broken veteran.

Our emphasis is on the positive. We are working with organizations able to support veterans to heal with honor. We partner with local and national organizations to help them find and focus on the overall well-being of veterans and their families. We help them develop programs that work, making them even more impactful.

Focusing on Wellness

Clearinghouse

Since 2012, the Center’s team of experts have been helping communities, organizations, and individuals find strategic, practical solutions for the most challenging issues facing today’s veterans and military families. The Center has been building a national network of community-based programs and learning which grassroot solutions are working, and which ones are not. As a result, the Center is the “go-to” resource for service-minded individuals, organizations, donors, and those who want veterans to reach their potential and participate fully in their communities. Collectively, Dixon Center has worked with more than 700 communities, 30,000 organizations and thousands of like-minded individuals that want to connect solutions, resources and tools to veterans and military families that they may need in education, meaningful employment, and wellness.

At Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services, we believe wellness is conscious, self-directed and evolving; holistic and multidimensional; positive and affirming; and inclusive.
