More About the Coalition

Our organization has been governed by a Board of Directors that has had over 200 years of collective direct and indirect military service. Our President and CEO comes from the University System, where she implemented Health and Wellness Coalitions, Tobacco Cessations programs, and worked with several million in grant funding. She is also the daughter of a WWII Veteran and was an Active Duty Army spouse for 15 years. The CEO also organizes and coordinates all monthly coalition meetings and partnerships. Under the Board and Chairman, the VCNCT functions with committee chairs and vice chairs. The final layers are the Veteran Service Organizations (members), community partners, and supporters.

We are organized using a combined approach of governance, Adaptive Leadership. The VCNCT was formed based on identified and reported needs of Veterans, their families, and Veteran services organizations while to eliminating the “red tape” of other like programs and services in the community. While the Coalition has successfully offered programs and services on a 100% volunteer basis for four and a half years, the demand for our assistance and leadership among our peers pushed the Coalition and its volunteers to capacity. In order to effectively and consistently continue to provide effective and relevant resource to Veterans, their families, and Veteran Service Organizations, and staff additional funding is necessary.  Upon receipt of funding, from multiple sources, we hired full-time staff to continue and expand services thought out the Region, State, and as a National model. The board, our current sponsors, and community partners supported this decision 100% and are committed to being the leaders in Veterans services.
