If you were unable to attend, we invite you to watch the webinar and view the slides to learn more about what the data means and to hear stories about the network’s impact over the past two years.
Our key findings as we moved to a network in practice with two years of operation are:
- 80% of service requests fall within six service categories: Employment, income support, housing & shelter, individual & family support, benefits navigation, and health & wellness.
- With the onset of the coronavirus, we are seeing increased need for food assistance and health & wellness, as clients are presenting with three or more co-occuring needs.
Based on these findings, ServingTogether is focused on ensuring our network is able to respond quickly and efficiently to increasing numbers of clients that will need support and connection as we see lasting impacts from this pandemic.
And we’re issuing this Call to Action:
- Join our community of practice by participating in our community collaboratives, attending our education and training events, or helping to build a sustainable future for this network. Let’s work together to have a collective impact on our military, veterans and their families.
- Make referrals into the network to providers who can quickly respond to the additional needs of the military-connected client that are outside your scope.
- Continue to help us spread the word to other service providers that you know are not currently active in the network. Help us make this the most robust network to meet the needs of all who have served and their families.
ServingTogether is grateful to have the support of so many great partners, elected officials, local governments and other stakeholders across the National Capital Region working to meet the needs of our military community.
