Who can be a helper in the Be Connected Ecosystem of Support? Everyone!

To reach, and support the 500,000 service members, veterans and their families who call Arizona home, we need everyone in our community equipped with the knowledge, skills and confidence to help.

Join the thousands of people across Arizona who have taken the steps to equip themselves as an open door for all who serve and their families. That way, when you are in a position to be an open door for someone, you’ll be ready!

And it’s important to note that at any one time we can be a person who needs help and support and we can be a person who gives help and support. 


Here are more examples of helpers:

        • Healthcare providers
        • Service animals/pets
