The Future of Veteran Services: Mission 85

Systems Strategy Veterans
Working with leadership from The Warrior Alliance, Upstate Warrior Solution, and Veteran's Bridge Home with support from the Arthur M. Blank Foundation, Openfields has facilitated the design and early development of a regional network of VSO partners committed to expanding access to quality, holistic services to veterans and their families through a seamless network connecting Atlanta, Greenville, and Charlotte / RDU known as Mission 85. 

Mission 85 envisions a world in which the barriers between veteran service organizations are broken down across geography and sector and local  communities are united to champion and care for veterans and their families.

Openfields contributions include: 
  • Facilitating network collaboration through strategy workshops and executive team meetings
  • Developing network-level gap analysis, current and future state goals, and initial network strategies
  • Integrating partner data platforms with population-level needs 
  • Facilitating a one-week summit on the Future of Veteran's Mental Health at West Creek Ranch
