Your financial support can make a difference in just about everything we do, from outreach to soldiers, to support for surveys that will provide information about the issues that are of most concern to military service members and their families, to support for one of our child and family programs. Your dollars will allow us to develop new and innovative approaches to reach these special populations. A brief description of these areas of need is provided below, and we invite you to view a video on our programs. To donate to a specific program, please click the name of it.
M-SPAN Buddy-to-Buddy Program
Individual donations help support a peer-to-peer program that uses trained volunteer veterans to provide outreach and support to service members and veterans, and link them to the resources they might need.
M-SPAN PAVE Program
This peer support program connects incoming student veterans on college campuses with peer advisors at their schools who can provide support, link them to resources to facilitate a smooth transition to college and help them navigate college life.
M-SPAN Strong Military Families
This group-based program provides support and parenting guidance to military families with infants, toddlers or preschoolers, offering families an opportunity to increase social connections, learn self-care strategies and enhance parenting skills.
M-SPAN HomeFront Strong
Help fund this eight-week resiliency group for military/veteran spouses or partners to build social support and positive relationships, learn new approaches to self-care, connect to resources and promote resiliency and positive coping.

Donations to M-SPAN support military mental health. Our high impact peer-to-peer programs help overcome stigma and decrease isolation, and our resilience-based programs for military families assist spouses and military families with young children.
