- Social Media – We have no social media presence, nor crowd funding efforts. Our goal is to reach as many post 911 vets as possible to let them know that there is real help with for all the issues at knowavet.org/ , both within and outside the VA. Let’s cut that 22 vet a day suicide rate! Timing: This is an ongoing Team program – Make your own hours minimum 3 per week.
- Website updating – This site needs to be updated to include more links, update content, show our current focus on Advocacy, encourage KnowAVet New subscriptions and donations to help vets. And, it has to grab the attention of vets like yourself. Timing: This is an ongoing Team program – Make your own hours minimum 3 per week.
- Communications – We want KnowAVet News to go from monthly to weekly. That would allow for more timely issues such as what services are being offered at the Vet Center next week, jobs coming up, events, articles on veteran services and benefits, etc. Timing: This is an ongoing Team program that should take about 3 hours a week.
- Physical outreach – We have material to go on bulletin board, etc. letting vets know of help. You can join our volunteer ground team and get our material into stores, bars, ERs, Kitchens, Shelters, etc. Timing: This is an ongoing individual program – Make your own hours minimum 3 per week.
- Networking – Reach out to your buddies. Look at the chart under the “Welcome Home” tab and you’ll see that there is no vet who cannot find several issues they can be helped with. Spread the word through your own network that we exist and Free help is available for the asking, including an advocate to get you through the information maze. Timing: There is no specific timing on this just reach out when you want to help a buddy.
- Database Enhancement – Our database has over 12,000 organizations in Silicone Valley with services for Veterans. While we have their names, phones, addresses, and websites, we may not have extremely important data such as; hours of operations; contact; requirements; restrictions, etc. You can help with the updates from anyplace with a phone and a computer. Timing: This is an ongoing Team program – Make your own hours minimum 3 per week.
