From our director:

Greetings team! We’re looking forward to an exciting month of May, which is also national Military Appreciation Month. We have many great events taking place this month and we hope you can participate in as many as possible.

As a network, we’re making a conscious effort to improve the time is takes for providers to accept referrals in Unite Us. From February 2018 through March 2018 we improved that number, cutting down that time period by 50 percent. Your support, whether through sharing our goals and resources on social media, by word of mouth at events and so much more that we know you are all doing each and every day – you are helping us make an impact.

Thank you for your continued support. If you have any questions about the events or registration process, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.

Our NCServes Central Carolina staff and providers had a busy month supporting veterans and their families at events throughout the region.

One of the highlights included attending the 2018 Women MilVets Summit & Expo hosted by the North Carolina Department of Military and Veteran Affairs.

We spread the word about the resources that NCServes Central Carolina offers to women veterans in attendance, and even met with some organizations that may join us as network providers in the near future.
