The 5 Domains of Be Connected


Introducing the 5 Domains of the Be Connected Program

Arizona is home to more than 500,000 service members, veterans, and their families. Communities across Arizona have diverse needs and circumstances. Understanding the uniqueness of Arizona also means understanding that there is no one-size-fits-all solution that will be effective. Meeting the needs of a diverse population requires a comprehensive solution that involves collaboration among many partners.

That’s why we’ve launched the five domains of the Be Connected program: 

  • People
  • Helpers
  • Communities
  • Organizations
  • Systems

This approach allows us to focus targeted efforts and approaches on the partners that fall within each domain while at the same time, weaving together a robust ecosystem of support that is made stronger as we build capacity, partnerships, and programs across all domains

The Heartbeat of Support

At the core of the Be Connected program are people, namely service members, veterans, and their families. Whether they are thriving or facing challenges, this domain focuses on connecting individuals with the resources they need, tailored to their unique life situations, needs, or interests. The program ensures that every person has access to the right support at the right time, fostering a sense of belonging and community.

Empowering Those Who Serve

Helpers are the community’s frontline supporters, including volunteers, mentors, and professionals who dedicate their time and skills to assist others. Be Connected empowers helpers by providing comprehensive training, ongoing support, and valuable information. This equips helpers with the tools, knowledge, and resources they need to effectively serve and make a meaningful impact in their communities – serving as an open door for service members, veterans, and their family members.

Leveraging Public and Private Partnerships

To provide the highest level of care and support, Be Connected connects with public and private sector organizations. By connecting to these entities in various ways that include training, workshops, an annual Statewide Symposium, and formal agreements, the program harnesses a wide array of resources and expertise, offering comprehensive services that are beyond the reach of any single organization. This partnership model enhances the quality and accessibility of support available to the service member community.

Building Strong, Collaborative Networks

Be Connected worked with communities, the backbone of societal support, to foster collaboration and coordination among various communities across Arizona. By bringing together local leaders, organizations, and residents, Be Connected cultivates a network of mutual support and understanding. This collaborative approach ensures that communities are resilient and inclusive, share information, and collaborate to address the diverse needs of its members.

Integrating Resources for Comprehensive Support

Systems represent the overarching structures that govern how services are delivered. Be Connected works to integrate and align these systems, ensuring they function cohesively to serve the community effectively. By connecting health, social, and support systems, the program creates a streamlined experience informed by the needs, desires, and experiences of service members, veterans, and their families. This minimizes confusion and maximizes the efficiency of service delivery.

The Be Connected program is more than just a service; it’s a commitment to building a stronger, more connected community for all who serve. Through its focus on connecting people, empowering helpers, uniting communities, leveraging organizational partnerships, and integrating systems, Be Connected stands for comprehensive support across each of these domains.
