Northeast Florida Taking Innovative First Steps to Support Veterans

Unite US Partners and Creates Resource Portal in First Step Towards Coordination

NEW YORK--()--Unite US, a technology platform that designs, builds, and delivers best-in-class collaboration and coordination case management software, streamlining the delivery of comprehensive health and human services, has partnered with Gratitude America to develop and launch VetsGuide.org, a resource portal for the Veterans and Military families in the Jacksonville, Fla. area. With a grant from the Jaguars Foundation, Gratitude America has taken the initiative to bring together public, private, and non-profit organizations, sharing a common agenda that provides the military community with direct access to organizations offering quality services.

VetsGuide.org enables visitors to search for resources by keyword or connect directly with Gratitude America staff via live chat. Veterans and families can easily locate and request services, while providers can service those requests and track outcomes via the software platform powered by Unite US.

“At Unite US, the technology we provide is more than just a software solution. We believe in forming partnerships and taking the first steps with community leaders to build foundations for coordinated networks of service providers to thrive, while informing stakeholders and decision makers of real-time needs and outcomes. We know Northeast Florida is a community of dedicated providers, and the demand from the community is there,” said Dan Brillman, Co-founder and Chief Executive Officer of Unite US.

The goal of VetsGuide.org is to expand into a fully coordinated network using Unite US’ Care Coordination technology, providing Northeast Florida’s military community with wrap-around services through a centralized, HIPAA-compliant referral platform for organizations to coordinate services based on an individual’s comprehensive needs. Unite US has already formed technology partnerships with Veterans Florida, a state-funded non-profit, that is now able to assist providers in Jacksonville to focus on their strongest services, and trust a network of providers to help serve a client comprehensively.

John Henry November, Executive Director of Gratitude America notes, "When the grant was awarded to Gratitude America from the Jaguars Foundation, not only were we honored but we also knew it needed to make a positive and measurable impact on the community. After meeting with the Unite US team, I knew we were on the same page and could bring Northeast Florida’s quality organizations together while, most importantly, making it easier for our military community to locate services. This is a great first step for our community and I look forward to the continued growth and support from our local providers.”
