Helping San Diego Veterans Find What They Need

We are here to help Veterans, First Responders, and their Families transition from active duty to being stable and healthy members of the society they have served so nobly.

Many Veterans will tell you they don't have the necessary resources to transition from active duty to civilian life successfully.

Based in the San Diego area, The Veterans Navigation Center connects Veterans to expert case managers familiar with the complex landscape of Veteran benefits who assist in obtaining resources.

Your case manager  will help you set goals and create a plan to get the support you need. We will refer you to the many partners in our support system, and then follow up with you to make sure you are successfully receiving the support you need.

A "One Stop Shop" to Help San Diego Veterans and their Families

Our goal is to help every Veteran thrive, live a successful civilian life, and achieve their personal, professional, and family goals by navigating their access to benefits and services and removing any barriers they may have encountered during or after military service or in early transition.

The VNC helps Veterans identify and access benefits and services available to them and works to remove any barriers to success they may have encountered during or after military service or early transition.

Scott H. Silverman, a Founder and Board Member of Veterans Navigation Center, discussed the policy of ticketing the #homeless for merely existing on KUSI this week. While the policy seems inhumane, it does present an opportunity for our law enforcement and first responders to offer the unhoused person services and incentivize them to get off the street. There are some good organizations to point them to, like Lucky Duck Foundation, Sunbreak Ranch, We See You, and others. Watch the entire appearance here:
