Our collaborative approach
MISSION UNITED MIAMI is working to become the key convener of an integrated ecosystem that promotes a collective impact approach to addressing veteran barriers – one that ensures alignment and partner accountability across the system – and provides a more scalable model to increasing engagement and pathways to veteran success after military service.
Long Term Goal: To disrupt the veteran services system; which is confusing to navigate – and collaborate with community partners and other Mission United programs in Florida – to create a statewide veterans’ network; that can then expand nationally through Mission United’s convening efforts and support.
