Today, Warrior Gateway announces the G.I. Network: A Nation of Support. One Network, the largest free network available designed to connect hundreds of thousands government programs and vetted non-profits, with the millions of veterans in the US.
Available in January 2012, the G.I. Network will connect veterans and their families with more than 220,000 government and non-profit organizations as well as with each other. The G.I. Network has been piloted over the last year with several Warrior Gateway non-profit and government partners to provide a collection of free tools and services to help veterans and military families find and connect with education, employment, health and wellness programs.
Ã¢Å“Warrior Gateway has a history of providing innovative technology solutions designed to help veterans and their families,Ã¢ said Devin B. Holmes, CEO of Warrior Gateway. Ã¢Å“Veterans tell us that there are too many disconnected resource websites. The G.I. Network is the game changer that solves this problem. It provides a solution to network all those resource websites and help people connect in a meaningful way. Developed in response to the Joining Forces initiative, the G.I. Network helps each of us connect with veterans and their families in our communities.Ã¢
The G.I. Network will launch in January 2012. For more information about participating and to be notified of the public launch, please visit: http://www.GINetwork.org.
