A case for greater coordination and collective impact among veteran service providers in communities

The Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University (IVMF) today released a report that underscores the need for greater coordination and collective purpose among public, private, and nonprofit organizations serving veterans and military families. The paper details what the authors describe as both a challenge and opportunity for communities to maximize positive outcomes for veterans and their families through “improved, evidence-based coordination” of supportive services. Titled, “Driving Community Impact: The Case for Local, Evidence-Based Coordination in Veteran and Military Family Services and the AmericaServes Initiative,” the publication leverages academic research from the public health and public management fields to highlight the promise of greater coordination, transparency, and data-driven practice among service providers.
