Navigators Partner With Veterans Organizations
Don and his wife came to Veterans Compass because they had lost their home shortly before communities were ordered to stay home due to the Covid-19 epidemic. They needed help. One of our Navigators stepped in to facilitate communication and coordinate efforts between governmental agencies, veterans organizations, and private businesses to ensure temporary shelter as well as guide Don and his wife in completing the many tasks needed to secure permanent housing. At a time when permanent housing was vitally important, Veterans Compass was able to help make a huge difference in this couple’s lives both during the epidemic and ongoing. From the very edge of homelessness to the security of having a home in which to protect themselves.
Veterans Compass Navigators understand that not every veteran is the same or faces the same challenges. More than that, Navigators are themselves veterans so they can best understand issues through a veterans’ eyes. Our Navigators walk veterans through an intake process to clearly identify needs, barriers to meeting those needs, and steps to overcome the barriers and achieve success.
Navigators have in-depth knowledge of federal, state, and local services. They build relationships with local businesses, community organizations, and veterans organizations. They provide information to veterans to work independently to meet their goals, or partner with them to navigate through other organizations’ processes. Education, employment, healthcare, and housing are some of the many areas in which we help veterans.
