The Got Your 6 Network: Quantifying and Addressing Veterans’ Needs

Author Image

The Bob Woodruff Foundation has heard directly from members of our Got Your Six Network about the extent to which the pandemic has exacerbated needs and challenges for veterans, much as it has for the rest of the country. This paper quantifies veterans’ needs and the capacities of America’s local communities to address those needs.

We invite you to please read and share these findings.

This paper offers valuable information to guide stakeholders, funders, policymakers, and local leaders in how to target support and resources for cross-sector collaboration.

These findings were developed using BWF’s Local Partner Self-Assessment Tool (LPSAT). Made possible by a $4.85 million gift from Craig Newmark Philanthropies, the LPSAT gathers data about the needs of veterans—and about communities’ ability to meet those needs—from BWF’s large, engaged, and diverse network of over 100 local partner collaboratives, representing more than 3,000 organizations across all 50 states.
