Resources for Veterans, Family Members and SHRM-Atlanta HR Professionals

  • Make the Connection Connecting veterans and their friends and family members with information, resources, and solutions to issues affecting their health, well-being, and everyday lives.
  • America's Top Military-Friendly Colleges Colleges featured on Military-Friendly list go above and beyond in their approach to veterans and military families by offering additional services which include financial-aid opportunities beyond the norm, special counseling services, veteran-oriented career counseling and much more!
  • The Mission Continues The Mission Continues challenges veterans to serve and lead in communities across America. Many veterans struggle to find the same purpose at home as they found in the mission, camaraderie and structure of the military. The Mission Continues does not offer charity; rather, it challenges returning service members to utilize their tremendous skills and leadership to continue serving our country at home.
