Dixon Center & Easter Seals TriState Pave Way For Cincinnati Veterans, Uniting Community Leaders And Veterans Around Successful Employment And Reintegration

Host first of four convening sessions as part of new community-wide Easter Seals Military & Veterans Initiative

CINCINNATI , Feb. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Today, Easter Seals TriState, in partnership with Dixon Center, hosted the first of four convening sessions for its Military & Veterans Initiative. Cincinnati leaders from military, business, education, non-profit and healthcare arenas gathered to map out critical services for area veterans, military service members, military families and the families of the fallen.

Funded by The Farmer Family Foundation and The Carol Ann and Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation, the community-wide initiative is working to identify existing programs and support services, as well as determine any gaps, especially in the areas of employment. Specifically, the group of more than 75 leaders addressed the critical services needed to support veterans on their path to obtaining and sustaining a job, including education, housing, health, wellness and mental health programs, and family resources. The next in the series of community convenings will take place May 7.

"We need to consolidate local efforts in communities and find synergies for the delivery of services or to services," says COL David Sutherland, U.S. Army, Retired, and Executive Director, Dixon Center. "We as a society need to focus on enabling veterans' potential, and not create more cookie cutter solutions. This is our mission at Dixon Center and approach here in Cincinnati."

Today's service members and veterans are making significant contributions to their communities but some face challenges during transition and reintegration -- whether physical wounds, isolation, or exasperating emotional and psychological wounds. They face unemployment, families that are not always intact, and communities unable to meet their immediate and long-term needs.
