SD Veteran & Family Wellness Strategy South County Community Conversation @ Martin Luther King Recreation Center | San Diego | California | United States

Military/Veteran Service Providers, Command Leadership, Government Leaders, Military/Veteran Spouses & others in the “Military/Veteran Connected Community!” 

The San Diego Military Family Collaborative and the San Diego Veterans Coalition in collaboration with research partner the Caster Center at the University of San Diego will be convening a series of  “Community Conversations” to map the regional ecosystem of the programs, resources and services offered to the Military/Veteran Connected Community. 

We need YOU to participate as a key informant in order to:

  • Share your lived experience and knowledge of “Military/Veteran” life
  • Contribute to the asset map by sharing information on your agency’s programs & services
  • Uncover opportunities to collaborate & further support the Military/Veteran Connected Community
The format and content of each convening will be identical so we ask all participants to choose only ONE “Community Conversation” to attend in an effort to allow diverse representation with limited seating.  Please register to secure your seat at a “Community Conversation” through Eventbrite.
