Equipping communities with proven programs and supports
The Institute for Military & Veteran Family Wellness provides a range of programming in collaboration with community stakeholders, providers and researchers. All of our in-house programming is run through our Veteran Spouse Network and aims to support the overall wellness of military and veteran families, with a focus on peer support and community engagement. All programs are offered to participants free of charge and are continuously evaluated and then disseminated when programs show effective outcomes.
Our focus on diversity and inclusion
At the Institute for Military and Veteran Family Wellness and the Veteran Spouse Network, our values are based on ensuring equity and inclusion for our diverse population. We are committed to serving these communities with integrity, competence, and respect for the dignity and worth of all people. We strive to create safe and inclusive spaces for our participants to connect and receive support. Our priority is to provide opportunities in which all people feel they are equally respected and valued. We embrace and celebrate each individual’s gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, marital status, race, color, religion, national origin, age, and ability. As part of our commitment to creating a positive and inclusive group environment, we expect all staff and volunteers to adhere to our core values, which include treating everyone with respect. We prohibit any conduct that results in an intimidating, hostile, or offensive group or work environment.
