— Partnership increases awareness of the opportunities available to veterans, service members,
and their families and caregivers —
Washington, D.C. – May 22, 2018 – America’s Warrior Partnership and Veteran Tickets Foundation (VetTix) announced today that they are partnering to enhance the resources and support services available to veterans, all currently serving military, their families and caregivers. The two national nonprofits will collaborate to increase awareness of their respective services and the benefits that individuals and organizations can gain from working with them. America’s Warrior Partnership provides communities with the resources, tools, training and partnerships they need to offer proactive, holistic care to local veterans. Vet Tix provides free event tickets to veterans, currently serving military members, their families and caregivers to attend entertainment and recreation events such as major sporting games, concerts and events in the arts.
“We conduct a survey within the communities we support every year to ask veterans about the areas where they need assistance, and opportunities for recreation regularly appears as one of the most sought-after services,” said Jim Lorraine, president and CEO of America’s Warrior Partnership. “Vet Tix is dedicated to enabling veterans, currently serving military and their families to attend community events, such as sporting events and concerts, where they can build strong relationships with their families and fellow veterans. We are honored to partner with the Vet Tix team and help more veterans find the ideal recreational event for them.”
“Our own research shows that most families simply cannot afford the cost associated with attending so many major events without the assistance of Vet Tix. That’s why we are thrilled to work alongside of America’s Warrior Partnership, working to empower our veterans, currently serving military, their families and caregivers, and the communities where they reside,” said Mike Focareto, CEO of Vet Tix.
America’s Warrior Partnership’s signature offering is its Community Integration model, which is active in nine communities across the country and has served more than 40,000 veterans in three years. This model empowers communities through training, mentorship and structure to conduct proactive outreach to veterans by connecting existing resources and providing tools to create stronger collaboration among existing veteran service providers, bridging gaps in service wherever they may exist. The result is a more coordinated approach that holistically serves each veteran’s individual needs,
ensuring no one slips through the cracks or does not receive essential support services.
