Civilian Neighbor

A feeling of community and connection is so important for military families. Having local support makes all the difference! Learn how to build community with your military and Veteran neighbors.

Military and Veteran families are counting on you.

Imagine being separated from your spouse and children for months, frequently uprooting to unfamiliar territory, or even making the tough decision to live apart for reasons related to employment or your childrens’ education. Many of us would never consider it, but our military-connected families endure these experiences regularly. The toll it can take on a family unit is why they need you — their civilian neighbor.
