Community Impact

Road Home Program is proud to serve veterans and their families – but we don’t achieve it alone. Through partnerships, we can add depth and breadth to our community impact.

We collaborate with a number of civic leaders and veteran service organizations to raise public awareness of the challenges veterans face.

Military Family

Co-sponsored by Bank of America, our first Military Family Symposium featured three keynote presentations followed by TED-style talks by local military family service providers and organizations.

Community Impact is a Team Sport

We partner with a number of community impact organizations that share our mission to provide access to expert care and resources for veterans. Together, we can provide the resources necessary to develop vital programs, build unity within communities, and meet the needs of veterans and their families.

As a member of the Warrior Care Network, we believe the way forward is together — building communities of support around every veteran and family.
