The Mission Continues has helped more than 1600 veterans focus their talents and energy to tackle challenges facing us right here at home. Through a unique model that provides reciprocal benefit for the veteran and the local community veterans volunteer to help others and, through their service, build new skills that help them launch their civilian career.
