Montgomery County government has created the Veterans Network of Care, a breakthrough Web solution for individuals, families and agencies concerned with veterans' issues.

A kick-off event is scheduled for 2 p.m. April 24 at the William O. Beach Civic Hall at 350 Pageant Lane, Clarksville. For more information, call 931-648-8482.

The Network of Care empowers veterans, service members, their families and service providers by providing online access to comprehensive services available within Clarksville/Montgomery County/Fort Campbell area.

The Network of Care for veterans, service members and their families is an online information place that provides critical information, communication and advocacy tools with a single point of entry.

Regardless of where veterans, service members and their families begin their search for assistance and services, the Network of Care for veterans, service members and their families ensures they will find what they need. The Network of Care provides a comprehensive service directory, putting people in touch with the right services at the right time. The Network of Care also provides easy-to-search libraries and vital information about crisis intervention, employment, education and reintegration points of contact, as well as daily news articles from around the nation concerning veterans' issues.

The new website will enable veterans, service members and their families to educate themselves about their issues; understand current policy initiatives and advocate directly to elected officials; and better manage their affairs, interactions and important records.

To increase accessibility and accommodate the Network of Care's users, the site's innovative technology provides near-universal access, regardless of literacy or income level, to Web-based services through adaptive technologies. The Network of Care also provides key information in multiple languages.

According to County Mayor Jim Durrett, "We envisioned a central location for all the resources needed by our local veteran and military population, but instead of one made of bricks and mortar, it's web-based. I am thrilled that we could create this to help our local heroes. We appreciate them and know they will find this website helpful."

Trilogy Integrated Resources, LLC, of San Rafael, Calif., created, developed and maintains the Network of Care for veterans, service members and their families and all of the other Network of Care websites. Trilogy, the leading information provider in the field of social services, serves 25 states via the Network of Care.
