Hey, this is a great next step to provide real services for veterans in San Francisco. The folks at the Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America and San Francisco are moving toward one stop shopping for vets.
IAVA joined Mayor Gavin Newsom to launch San Francisco’s Veterans 311 Portal. This innovative, one-stop shop combines resources provided by the VA, federal, state and local governments, and nonprofit organizations specifically for veterans in the Bay Area. The online hub includes information about jobs, economic development programs, educational opportunities and information on the New GI Bill from IAVA’s NewGIBill.org, as well as healthcare and mental health resources.
This stuff really is a big deal, one more effort to recognize real service to the US.
Disclaimers: I'm on the board of IAVA, and I served on the Mayor's transition team proposing 311 for SF.
