I hope this finds you well! Americans who have served in the military may qualify for the Veterans Pension, a tax-free monetary benefit. However, not all veterans are aware of the many financial options that are available to them so we’ve created a page dedicated to the men and women who have served our country. It features a wide range of topics related to veterans’ financial literacy.

Here’s a link for reference:

At The Mission Continues, we’re on a mission to connect veterans with under-resourced communities. Click on links below to learn more about…

Women Veterans Leadership Program

The Mission Continues’ Women Veterans Leadership Program tackles these challenges, so that women veterans build a movement to pursue equality of all women.

Download the full program prospectus here: WVLP Cohort 5 Prospectus

The Women Veterans Leadership Program (WVLP), launched in March 2020, provides leadership skills and knowledge for women veterans to build a movement so we can pursue equal opportunities for all women in leadership attainment. 

WVLP program members will have opportunities to engage a nationwide network of women leaders and The Mission Continues staff throughout the five months of the program and beyond. After completion of the program, WVLP graduates will gain access to a growing alumni network and be eligible for additional mentorship and leadership opportunities to help grow a veteran-led movement of service.

Health care delivery begins under new VA contract


ATLANTA — Today marks the beginning of community health care delivery to our local Veterans under the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) contract awarded to Optum Public Sector Solutions, Inc., part of United Health Group, Inc.

“The new Community Care Network (CCN) contract awards reflect our ongoing commitment to increasing Veterans access to care,” said VA Secretary Robert L. Wilkie, “and were designed based on feedback from Veterans and other stakeholders.”

“We are confident it will greatly improve care coordination for Veterans here in our area and improve the timeliness of payments to our local community providers,” said Atlanta VA Health Care System Director Ann Brown.

TriWest Health Care Alliance has been managing VA’s community care network in the area and will fully transition responsibility to Optum over the next 30 days. VA community providers contracted by TriWest will not be automatically enrolled in CCN, so they will be required to sign up with Optum to continue providing services to Veterans under CCN.

VA’s new community care network is made up of six regions. Region 3 includes Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Puerto Rico, South Carolina, Tennessee, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. VA is deploying this new network in phases to ensure continuity of care coordination. Veterans will continue to receive care from their current community providers during the transition.

The new network serves as the direct link between VA and local health care providers providing an industry-standard contract vehicle for VA to purchase care. Optum will manage the network and process claims for payment to local providers on behalf of VA.
