Investment in Our Work with Purpose Programs

“Our partnerships allow us to assist veterans and their families achieve economic empowerment.”             
– Eileen Greenlay, Director of Development

Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services is honored to announce a large, multi-year grant from a partner foundation for our Work with Purpose programs. 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 over 4,000 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 9th 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.
