Connecting more veterans, service members and their families to support services with specially trained Pathfinders and Navigators
On July 30, King County Executive Dow Constantine announced a $7.5 million initiative that will provide specially trained Pathfinders and Navigators to connect more veterans, servicemembers, and their families to a network of supportive services.
The community-based Pathfinders and Navigators will reach out to veterans, servicemembers, and their families throughout King County, focusing on those who face the greatest barriers, including veterans who are women, transgender, Native Americans, people of color, veterans who are experiencing homelessness, and their families. In addition to services, the Pathfinders and Navigators will connect veterans who experience isolation to supportive communities.
“No other county in this nation does more to support those who serve in the armed forces, yet our mission will not be complete until we connect all veterans, servicemembers, and their families to the services they need to thrive,” said Executive Constantine. “We have increased the resources available to veterans who live in King County. Now, our specially trained Pathfinders will reach those who face the greatest barriers to those resources.”
