The Got Your 6 Network: Quantifying and Addressing Veterans’ Needs in 2023, below, describes

  • the needs of the military and veteran population in communities, as reported by the Bob Woodruff Foundation’s Got Your 6 Network partners across the country; and
  • the capability and capacity of communities to address those needs.

Our report confirmed that, in many communities, the military and veteran population’s needs such as mental healthcare, physical healthcare, housing, emergency financial assistance, food, and transportation, exceed the available services. Each of those needs have increased since 2021, and the capacity of service providers is generally not keeping pace with those needs.
