We're On A Mission To Connect Veterans With Under-resourced Communities

Service Leadership Corps members gather at Crossroads Community Service in Dallas for a service project

The Mission Continues’ vision is for all veterans with a desire to continue their service to be part of a nationwide movement to transform communities.

Veterans are at the center of everything we do.

We’re building a movement that empowers veterans to continue their service, and empowers communities with veteran talent, skills and preparedness to generate visible impact.

At The Mission Continues, we’re on a mission to connect veterans with under-resourced communities. Our programs deploy veteran volunteers to work alongside nonprofit partners and community leaders to improve educational resources, tackle food insecurity, foster neighborhood identity, and more.

Our Empowered Veteran Index is the framework we use to measure and ensure our work is having an impact. A guide to how we continuously look to improve our work, it dovetails with our vision to empower all veterans to be a part of a movement of service in under-resourced communities.
