To Those We Serve


2022 presented MFAN with an abundance of opportunities. We relished moments to listen to the lived experiences of military and veteran families, stages to educate and inform others through our research, and occasions to connect families to resources that empower them to thrive.

As we enter our 10-year anniversary, our process remains tried and true: identify the evolving needs of military families and drive collaborative responses. Our trusted research and unique peer-to-peer network allow us to understand the scope and urgency of what military families truly need and value, giving us a vehicle to provide critical resources and inspire data-informed change. This process has given military families a seat at the table when it comes to the topics that affect their daily lives like food insecurity, affordable and safe housing, financial readiness, health and well-being, transition to civilian life, and much more.

Our rich insights have continued to be revered by armed forces leadership, government officials, and fellow military and veteran service organizations, increasing opportunities for collaboration and expanding support networks.

This work is not possible without YOU.

The entire team at MFAN – made up of our Board of Directors, Advisory Board and Alumni, staff, and generous partners and supporters – remains committed to doing our part to serve our military community. We pride ourselves in our work and are beyond grateful for the support you have provided. Our work is not done, and we are well-positioned to welcome more opportunities to help military families thrive in the year ahead.
