Military Services |

Members of the Centerstone staff recently attended the Third Annual National Convening, co-hosted by the Elizabeth Dole Foundation and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. Pictured are Centerstone’s Military Services Executive Director Jodie Robison, Military Services Board Member Mike Enos and National Policy Director Monica Nemec.

The theme for the event was “Hidden Heroes: Enhancing Support for the Military and Veteran Caregiver Journey.” The work included exploring ways to support the caregiver at every step of the journey.

Robison said, “I enjoyed the Elizabeth Dole Hidden Heroes Convening. It offered me an opportunity to network with people from other organizations providing services to the military population as well an opportunity to spread the word about Centerstone’s Military Services. Senator Dole’s passion for serving military caregivers is a true driving force in this community.”

Nemec added, “It was humbling to witness the warmth of everyone who participated in and attended the Third Annual Hidden Heroes event. We are here to support our veterans and those who care for them, and look forward to what the coming year will bring.”
