Arizona’s Service Members & Veterans Supporting Communities

PHOENIX, AZ (STL.News) Arizona’s veterans and service members have stepped up to support our communities and those in need during the pandemic.  From supporting food banks to providing supplies to the Navajo Nation, ramping up vaccine administration in the Gila River Indian Community and much more, Arizona’s heroes are always there to help.

More than 500,000 service members, veterans and their families call Arizona home.   Governor Doug Ducey and the Arizona Department of Veterans’ Services have worked to support and meet the needs of those who have done so much to protect our nation.

Here are a few ways Arizona is working to support those in uniform, veterans and their loved ones:

Arizona launched the Be Connected program in 2017 to focus on early intervention by connecting Arizona service members, veterans, families and helpers to information, support and resources, such as peer support and behavioral health services.

The program now has 44 staff members after starting with just one, and it has led to:

  • More than 49,000 encounters to help Arizonans connect to community resources by phone, in-person or online, and
  • More than 5,600 community members being trained in Resource Navigation.
