Our Vision is a community that is responsive to the needs of Veterans and their families. We have been Serving Veterans across the state of Utah, except Salt Lake County, and the south eastern part of Idaho for 20 years. We pride ourselves on well trained staff who help Veterans and their families work towards a return to self-sufficiency. If you are looking to make a positive impact, and a long-term career we want to talk to you!

What would you do?

As a Health Care Navigator you would be helping veterans and their families who are either literally homeless or at risk of homelessness in order to coordinate them with medical support. This includes helping apply for VA medical, or Medicaid/Medicare, obtaining Primary Care providers and Mental Health providers for the veteran or family members, and coordinating to ensure the participants have full access to available medical assistance. You will be following up with the veteran to assure they make their appointments, following the medical provider’s recommendations, etc.
