Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

NAVSO has one mission: improve the lives of veterans and military families by transforming the veteran services marketplace. By learning and sharing exportable best practices in employment, housing, legislation, mental health, peer support and education, NAVSO is improving organizational capacity and competency in nonprofit organizations, private and corporate foundations (funders) and in businesses (employers). Over the next 3 years, NAVSO will accelerate marketplace progress by offering new and powerful tools and solutions to help veterans find high quality help when and where they need it most.

NAVSO leverages our broad and deep understanding of the service member and veteran experience, coupled with our network of nonprofits, businesses and funders, to build game-changing solutions leading to dramatic shifts in the marketplace. We've convened many of the nation's leading experts to develop and deliver tools and solutions organizations, funders and employers can use, on-demand, to improve their efforts. Through a variety of offerings (online tools, on-demand solutions, webinars and summits), NAVSO will share exportable best-practices and critical resources to organizations seeking to break the status quo.

Despite NAVSO's infancy and small staff, our partners, members and supporters serve as force multipliers to help NAVSO develop and deliver meaningful content and tools quickly. With experts in big data, technology design, strategic communications, employment, mental health, housing and more, NAVSO staff and advisors ensure our solutions meet the most pressing organizational and marketplace needs.

NAVSO strives to incrementally improve the veteran services marketplace by offering impactful resources to organizations, agencies and companies serving veterans and military families. To achieve this mission, NAVSO has made much progress but still has lofty goals :

- Increase membership: with more members in our association, our ability to drive meaningful impacts improves greatly. Serving 25,000 professionals representing more than 2,500 organizations, agencies and corporations is just a start.

- Add services: as the needs of veterans and military families evolve, so must organizations serving them. NAVSO is always seeking new and impactful ways to improve service provider effectiveness and efficiency. With more than 15 services already in concept phase, NAVSO aims to move the most impactful from concept to market in the next 3 years as resources become available.

- Increase incentives: in an ideal world, organizations, agencies and companies focused on veterans and military families would work together to solve complex problems. Unfortunately, the fragmented marketplace is dominated by competition, duplication and service gaps. NAVSO aims to develop incentivized structures to mitigate unhealthy competition, eliminate duplication and minimize gaps in service.
