How to Get Involved in a Community Force
Whether you want to create a new community force, join one or improve the community force in your state, you can find what you need to take action below.
1. Join an established community group
Connect with the Inter-Service Family Assistance Committee or Joining Community Forces Committee in your community.
2. Create a new community group
If your state does not have an organized community network, and you would like to start one, here are ways to started.
Check out how to establish an Inter-Service Family Assistance Committee or how to find and recruit veterans for community service.
3. Volunteer in your community
Are you interested in donating your time or talent with your community network? Getting involved is an easy way to show your support.
If your community does not have an ISFAC or JCF Committee or you prefer to simply find a volunteer effort that is focused improving the lives of the members of the military community, then check out volunteer opportunities through the Corporation for National and Community Service.
Discover community solutions
Whatever approach suits you best – starting or joining a community group or finding volunteer opportunities locally – is fine. The important thing is to get involved.
