What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Approximately 20,000 military personnel leave active duty service in southern California each year. Of these about 25% wish to remain in the region post service. However, transition from the military to civilian life can be really hard. In fact, those transitioning today are facing greater incidences of unemployment, homelessness, health crises and suicide than their similarly aged civilian counterparts. Their needs are varied & multiple and go well beyond just finding post-military employment. Multiple areas of transition support are crucial for our patriots to truly thrive including: post-service employment; education; health and wellness services; basic needs stability and community/social connections. And, while there are hundreds of exceptional organizations offering services, it is incredibly difficult to identify & connect with those uniquely best suited to support their specific post-military service needs without a knowledgeable guide to maneuver the social services ecosystem

Charting impact

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

Given that transition needs are varied and often multiple, zero8hundred‘s primary goal is to provide crucial, holistic support to those transitioning from the military to civilian life that starts early; is individualized and addresses their complete, rather than just their singular transition needs.

Through ongoing, comprehensive and individualized care coordination with a dedicated 1:1 peer counselor – a trained clinician with military experience themselves – our specific goal is for our Veterans-in-Process (VIPs) to be able to craft and execute an ambitious yet attainable transition plan for thriving in our southern California civilian community. Importantly, instead of providing direct services in just a single area of transition need, zero8hundred‘s goal is to provide our VIPs with wrap-around support that effectively links them to the resources they need to address all of their multiple pillars of veteran wellness to include: post-service employment; education opportunities; health and wellness services; basic needs stability and community/social connections. We also seek to empower and educate our VIPs on how they can best identify and link to vetted resources, after their enrollment in the zero8hundred program is over, so that they can develop self-sufficiency in meeting those needs as they may change or as new needs may emerge.
