Wounded Warrior Project Hosts Over 80 Veterans Service Organizations for Strategy Seminar

SAN ANTONIO, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- For years, Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) has partnered with organizations that share its mission to honor and empower Wounded Warriors. Recently, WWP hosted a strategy session for over 80 veterans service organizations (VSOs) to network and discuss best practices for serving wounded veterans in Texas and nationwide.

"Wounded Warrior Project understands that no single organization can solve the complex challenges that wounded veterans face," said Jennifer Silva, WWP chief program officer. "As a collective whole, however, veterans service organizations have a much stronger chance of transforming communities and supporting injured veterans by connecting warriors with services and programs that empower them to live successful lives."

WWP is committed to putting injured veterans' needs first and building stronger relationships with other VSOs, which will dramatically improve services for wounded warriors and their families.

Event attendees included Team Red, White & Blue; United Way; The Walmart Foundation; Alamo Community Group; Texas Veterans Commission; USAA®; Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF); and many others. IVMF, higher education's first interdisciplinary academic institute, is singularly focused on advancing the lives of the nation's military veterans and their families.

"This event was about bringing everyone involved in veterans care at the local level together and making sure that we're aligned with the community in San Antonio," said Col. (Ret.) Jim McDonough, IVMF managing director for programs and services. "Wounded Warrior Project has done a great job establishing the conditions for success in this community and others around the country. This conference provided a critical platform where we could come together and discuss how to better serve veterans, collectively, and more efficiently."

The conference focused on how different VSOs can use technology to empower their teams to better support each other and the veterans they serve. The main objective was trust and confidence – an important theme for the future of how VSOs operate in communities, according to McDonough.

"We need communities and veterans service organizations to build and retain confidence in each other and one another," he said. "There needs to be a synergy between these groups because wounded veterans have complex needs."
