WALTHAM, Mass., Dec. 10, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- RallyPoint has announced the finalization of a Memorandum of Understanding

(MOU) with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to improve veteran outcomes and experiences. RallyPoint and the VA will collaborate to improve access to and navigation of services in local communities for Veterans worldwide. This technology-driven partnership will help community-based programs and support transitioning Servicemembers, Veterans, families, caregivers, and survivors.

"We are very excited to work with the VA. This MOU was signed with the Veteran Experience Office, putting the Veteran's needs at the center of the partnership" said RallyPoint CEO, Dave Gowel. "On RallyPoint there are over 350,000 conversations about military life that touch every milestone within the VA's Veteran journey map. Because of the breadth of conversations on our platform, we are in a unique position to help Veterans, families and caregivers at all stages of their journey: while a recruit, in uniform and as a Veteran."

According to the VA, one of the biggest gaps Veterans face is the ability to rapidly connect to trusted information, people and organizations at the moment a Veteran is in need of such connections. With over 2 million connections to-date, the VA will look to RallyPoint and their expertise on peer to peer connection. The VA will also share information with the Community Veterans Engagement Boards (CVEBs) about RallyPoint. RallyPoint will serve as a community tool that is free for CVEB's to share information. Together, this partnership will support the coordination and sharing of relevant information and tools while increasing outreach and engagement to improve access and navigation of veteran services in the community.
