New Toolkit for Veteran Community-Based Organizations

The National Center
 

The National Center on Family Homelessness (The National Center) has created a 52-page tool kit for community-based organizations who work with Veterans and their families.

The tool kit, Engaging Veterans and Families to Enhance Service Delivery, includes tools, resources, best practices, and research to improve the effectiveness of community-based organizations’ efforts. This includes outreach, service, and engagement with both Veterans and their family members – who are often those Veterans’ sole support.

The kit explores:

  • The importance of military cultural competency
  • Effective outreach campaigns, including maximizing traditional outreach methods and using social media and text messages
  • Outreach to veterans’ friends
  • Understanding and addressing traumatic stress

You can read the tool kit here.
