GCN’s Metro Atlanta Veterans’ Services Research Project is the first comprehensive study designed to gain a more holistic understanding of how best to support area veterans....

Both veterans and veteran-service organizations were surveyed in the ten-county metro Atlanta area, home to approximately 216,000 vets. In this blog series, we'll explore issues highlighted by the report and potential solutions. These include the skyrocketing of vet-related service usage over time; nonprofits’ capacity to provide veteran-specific assistance; and the mismatch of nonprofits’ focus and veteran needs.

Our members have been busy!
