Snohomish County Veterans' Network of Care


The Network of Care for Service Members, Veterans & Their Families is part of a growing awareness and effort to take a community approach to the needs of returning veterans, to ensure that they are a valuable part of a healthy community and that the community is a meaningful part of the health of the veteran. The Network of Care for Service Members, Veterans & Their Families is a one-stop-shop for virtually all services, information, support, advocacy, and much more. This public service is an attempt to bring together critical information for all components of the veterans' community, including veterans, family members, active-duty personnel, reservists, members of the National Guard, employers, service providers, and the community at large. Since the introduction of this program in October 2011, the response has been phenomenal:

4,260 total sessions or just over 23 per day

25,601 total page views; nearly 140 per day

95,446 total hits (521.5 per day)


Average length of time spent per session overall has been 5 minutes, 17 seconds
