Top 10 Highlights of 2022

We say thanks to each of you who are champions of our veterans and those touched by military service and assisted Dixon Center for Military and Veterans Services during a very challenging year. In gratitude, we are reflecting on 2022 and celebrating Dixon Center’s top 10 highlights of 2022. 

  1. Dixon Center’s impact increased from 2.4 to 2.8 million veterans and military families through our work providing Influence, Ideas, and Actions to individuals and organizations across the country.
  2. Dixon Center expanded work within our 3 pillars: Work With Purpose, Heal With Honor, and Live With Hope.
  3. Dixon Center worked across the Fedcap Group supporting its many companies. We assisted Fedcap Serving Maine to stand up their “Veterans Forward” program assisting veterans their families. Dixon Center now serves as a member of the Veterans Forward Advisory Board. We also went international by assisting Fedcap UK with the development of their first ever veterans supportive services concepts and proposal.
  4. We continued to execute agreements with national trade organizations to expand existing workforce development efforts and focus on providing a pathway for under-represented populations into non-traditional careers.
  5. Dixon Center increased access to resources and strengthened our financial position ensuring our continued presence as a national organization with staying power.
  6. Our podcast “Service Before Self” completed its second season to a steadily increasing audience. Season three, focusing on issues impacting our nation’s veterans and military families is under development.
  7. Dixon Center assisted in the development and execution of the Angel Force “Stop Suisilence Summit” raising awareness and bringing multiple organizations together to discuss innovative ways to address the scourge of veteran death by suicide.
  8. Dixon Center continued to make the holiday a bit easier for hundreds of veterans across the country through our Holiday Basic Needs Grants thanks to generous contributions from our Command Council. These grants provided real time relief from the impacts of raising cost in heating fuels, food, and other basic needs.
  9. We welcomed two new team members. Eileen Greenlay joined us as our new Manager of Donor Relations and Grants. United States Army Retired Colonel Kaname “Kenny” Kuniyuki joined as the 2023 – 2025 Robert J. McCann Program and Impact Assessment Fellow.
  10. We got back on the road in a big way as we travelled to partner locations nationwide. We hope to see you soon in person.

Just like you, we reflect on our activities of 2022 to help provide guideposts and goals for our 2023. We hope your reflection does the same. If you want to read more detail on our past year be on the lookout for the 1 February 2023 Bugler which will announce the release of our 2022 Annual Report.
