Community Blueprint

The Community Blueprint is a set of tools and practices that provide a framework for communities to produce positive, measurable outcomes for veterans, military members and their families.

It consists of two things:  

  1. The Blueprint Toolbox – organized into eight drawers (i.e., IMPACT AREAS), each containing a variety of tools (i.e.,  COMMUNITY SOLUTIONS)   
  2. Community Blueprint Network – Community Blueprint Communities + Advisory Council members and their organizations + additional partner organizations

What Is the Goal?  

To have hundreds of communities with teams touching veterans, military and their families – by implementing in each of the Community Blueprint impact areas.

What Is the Vision?  

We want the Community Blueprint to serve as a model for change – for new solutions for communities.

What Is New?  

In 2015, we are introducing Frontline Families. This national service program inspires military families to serve as volunteers, helping them reintegrate into their communities after military life. For more information, click here.
