Readying Nebraska Communities to Serve Veterans and Their Families
VetSET Nebraska aims to increase Military Cultural Competence across rural communities. Through networking and training opportunities, we prepare community providers and partners to recognize and address the unique culture, experience, and language of military service members and their families.
VetSET Nebraska works to strengthen the network of community resources available to veterans, service members, and their families. By championing multi-disciplinary, cross-sector partnerships, and using tools like the Network of Care to facilitate connections, more rural veterans and their families are receiving services from a well networked, extended continuum of civilian providers.
VetSET Nebraska helps veterans, service members, and their families connect to and access resources within their communities. We make connections with veterans, service members and family members to identify their needs. Through outreach activities and one-on-one interactions, our VetSET coordinator also assists with accessing and navigating resources.
