Who We Are

We are exclusively focused on improving the effectiveness and efficiency of veteran services across the public and private sector. NAVSO is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to improving the lives of veterans and military families. We do this by providing essential resources to those who serve them: we commission research, offer educational programing, offer direct consultation, use technology to join together veteran-serving organizations in a national network to improve collaboration/partnerships, and facilitate the evaluation of meaningful services. 

Our Focus Areas and Services

NAVSO provides essential resources to those who serve veterans and military families so they are more effective in meeting their needs. Collectively, these services improve the veteran services marketplace so families find quality programs when and where they are needed:

  • Research: NAVSO oversees and funds evidence-based, actionable research concerning the evolving needs of veterans and military families and the leading solutions facilitating their success.
  • Educate: NAVSO educates service providers via research results, provides quality benchmarks and shares best practices while providing actionable ways to implement them in their community. NAVSO educates through online webinars, speaking engagements and conferences.
  • Consult: NAVSO experts advise veteran-serving organizations, government agencies and corporations to help them identify key areas of need and to improve their services for veterans and military families.
  • Collaborate: NAVSO facilitates collaboration by creating a shared vision around high-impact, evidence-based benchmarks. Through the NAVSO network, member organizations have access to toolkits and shared data; participate in national task forces; and connect with like-minded organizations and other stakeholders such as government agencies, corporations and philanthropy.     
  • Evaluate: NAVSO provides quality benchmarks and helps organizations measure the effectiveness of their programs. NAVSO believes evidence-based decision-making will ultimately help more organizations deliver higher-quality services to more veterans and their families.

New, Young or Small Nonprofit? Need a Scholarship?

We recognize many of the organizations that need our services most are nascent, making the cost of our services difficult to justify in the early years. Yet, accessing our tools, learning in our webinars and collaborating with others will help these same organizations scale to greater impacts faster. As a result, we're happy to consider scholarship requests from nonprofit organizations with annual revenues less than $50,000 per year. Request your scholarship now.
