Community Conversations

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 has
convened a series of “Community Conversations” to map the regional ecosystem of the
programs, resources and services offered to the Military/Veteran Connected Community as a part of the SD Veteran & Family Wellness Strategy.

As conveners of many military service providers in San Diego County, the San Diego Military Family Collaborative (SDMFC)- and San Diego Veterans Coalition (SDVC)- are partnering together to better support our service members (Active Duty/Veterans) and their families by creating a “Road Map” of programs/services/resources provided to these individuals during different “life moments.”  With support from USD’s Caster Center, this partnership has totaled 4 regional convenings to get an informed landscape of the supports that exist for this community.
