OUR SUPPORT PARTNERS
Whether you're looking for resources or interested in joining our organization, we want to hear from you!
The Military Order of the World Wars (MOWW) has been an active member of SDVC since 2015. The SDVC has enhanced our ability to better serve other veteran organizations and veterans themselves through new partnerships and collaboration. Our membership also fulfills us with opportunities to give back our time and resources and offer financial contributions for initiatives like Honor Flight San Diego, the Randy Jones Foundation, Stand Down and the Travis Manion Foundation.
The opportunity to collaborate with veteran service providers has been a force multiplier for The Elizabeth Hospice. More than 150 organizations/nonprofits meet monthly to share information and network. You meet the right people to hear the right information at the right time to make informed decisions. The Elizabeth Hospice has been a member for four years. I quickly realized that SDVC had a measurable impact on the lives of veterans and their families so I joined the board of directors in 2018. As a veteran spouse, I am also an active member of the Family Life Action Group (FLAG). It’s not just those in uniform that served, but it’s the entire family. Collaboration works.
