Often, major fundraising efforts struggle to get funding released fast enough where it can do the most good – in the community, helping veterans with re-integration and access to jobs, healthcare, education and a home. With the over 1 million active duty military returning to their communities from service over the next few years, there is no time to waste.
Sutherland and his team, through their work at Dixon Center and the Joint Staff, have extensive knowledge of the veteran and military family not-for-profit landscape.
Through Dixon Center, a strategic framework will build upon the proven models of systems level change and collaboration as envisioned through Dixon Center’s vision; focus will be placed on partners with healthcare, employment, housing and education/training expertise—delivered at the local community level with demonstrable efficacy and system level thinking.
Dixon Center, under the leadership of Col. David W. Sutherland, US Army (retired) has a trusted advisor role with direct knowledge and awareness of thousands of veteran organizations. Sutherland cultivated a network of thousands of organizations and like-minded individuals over the past several years, including during his tenure as a direct report to Admiral Mike Mullen, 17th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs.
