Governor Forms Public-Private Partnership to Help Transitioning Veterans and their Families
On September 1, Governor Pat McCrory announced a $1 million gift from the Walmart Foundation to a public-private partnership designed to help newly separated Veterans transition into civilian life in the State. Led by the North Carolina Division of Veterans Affairs NC4VETS, partnerships have been formed with NCServes, a network of service providers for Veterans and their families in Charlotte that is collaborating with the Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University. NCServes will kick off in the Triangle area later this month, with additional consulting support from Accenture, and will be implemented in all 100 NC counties during the next three years. The partnership will ensure that resources are aligned at the state and local levels to improve the lives of Veterans and their families across the State.
