SCServes Low Country: Strategy Session #2
On behalf of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families at Syracuse University and Wounded Warrior Corps, we would like to thank you for supporting the SCServes – Low Country initiative to expand upon existing efforts to collectively align South Carolina’s private, public and nonprofit services and resources to better serve veterans and their family members.
As you may recall from our second strategy session, our goal is for South Carolina to develop a coordinated network of services and resources that epitomizes trusted partnerships, and best serves our transitioning servicemembers, veterans and their families.
Thank you for those of you that were able to attend our second of four strategy sessions. As discussed, we’ve included a few products for your review. They include the materials we used to guide our last strategy session and In Progress Reviews (IPRs) from NYServes – NYC and NCServes – Metrolina. Both provide great insight into the responsibilities of the Coordinated Network and the Coordination Center during the pilot phase. For those of you unable to attend the second strategy session, we welcome your feedback once you’ve had a chance to review the enclosed materials.
In terms of action items, we’re tracking the following due-outs in advance of our next session:
- In the coming weeks, we’ll disseminate a short survey on to ascertain interest in applying to be the Coordination Center and overall assessment on the viability of SCServes Low Country. We ask that you take the time to complete the survey and provide us with recommendations.
- Be an ambassador to the community and make sure you invite your partners to the next meeting so we can truly create a network of value for transitioning veterans and their families.
- Provide introductions to providers. During our last meeting, many of you recommended providers and stakeholders to include in the Network. Please provide the appropriate connections so that we can inform them of this endeavor and include them in subsequent meetings.
- Keep an eye out for the third strategy session invitation.
