OUR PURPOSE

Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services

There are nearly 11 million organizations across all sectors of American society. If they all include our military veterans and their families as employees, students, recipients of services and supports – those touched by military service will thrive. As a nation, we can’t rely on a small number of veteran serving organizations and government. It takes a whole of society approach. The good news is that there is no lack of will on the part of the American public. They want to help but they may not be sure how.

This is where Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services comes in—we are 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. These organizations transform the lives of service members, veterans, and their families, ensuring they reach their full potential.

We work with organizations from all sectors of society – public, private, social, and civic. We provide and coordinate technical assistance/ training, resource sharing, and strong leadership for our partners, who, with our ongoing support share our noble purpose: to make the lives of our veterans and their families better.
