Military-connected personnel and their families are vulnerable in the very requirements of service, and minimal post-enlistment support. A multitude of defined issues result in their reluctance to rely on government and social services. Regardless, obstacles one must maneuver to obtain help can be daunting, and while there is available assistance; accessibility, convenience and awareness are lacking. CWU HR strives to assist this vulnerable population through research and eventual implementation of objectively appropriate support strategies provided online and/or in person. Support is proposed to be offered in four categories: Health and Wellness, Education/Vocational management, Social Services, and Underrepresented Populations.
