Melissa McHarg interviews Michael Haynie, Ph.D. the Executive Director & Founder of Institute for Veterans and Military Families (IVMF) at Syracuse University. The conversation takes a close look at AmericaServes. The mission of AmericaServes is “to empower human services providers in the United States, and equip them with the technological and informational resources needed to efficiently and effectively guide service members, veterans, and their families to the most appropriate services and resources.” As Mike explains it, it is not so much that there are a lack of services for Veterans but there is not a community network to make those services available when and where they are needed. AmericaServes helps communities create strong service networks.
