With the goal of honoring and supporting those who have served our country, we will bridge the past, present and future, deepening communication and the culture of support for veterans among those in the civilian and commercial communities. The VANC Resource Center will be a vibrant gathering place in North County San Diego where all veterans, active duty military members, and their loved ones can easily reach out for help and connect with others. VANC will engage and inform community organizations, service providers, and individuals about the needs of our deserving heroes, and the ways in which we can work together to improve their circumstances at a local level. Our VANC resource center and support strategy will be a model for all other neighborhoods interested in serving their military community.
