The Mission Continues

The Mission Continues’ vision is for all veterans with a desire to continue their service to be part of a nationwide movement to transform communities. We’re building a movement that empowers veterans to continue their service, and empowers communities with veteran talent, skills and preparedness to generate visible impact. At The Mission Continues, we’re on a mission to connect veterans with under-resourced communities. Our programs deploy veteran volunteers to work alongside nonprofit partners and community leaders to improve educational resources, tackle food insecurity, foster neighborhood identity, and more. Your support remains crucial as we empower veterans to find new meaning and focus in their lives through continued service—and to strengthen their communities in the process.
