MVAA's FY23 Annual Report: Serving veterans with purpose and pride

From attacking veteran homelessness and suicide to championing new veteran job initiatives, the MVAA closed out its first decade in 2023 by continuing to break down the barriers Michigan veterans face in all facets of life.

As spelled out in our 2023 Annual Report, the staff of the Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency reinforced our unwavering commitment to serving Michigan’s 530,000-plus veterans and their families.

For us, serving veterans is not just a job, but a deeply personal mission. Many of our 70+ employees, contractors and volunteers are veterans and most have close family members who served. But all of us care deeply about helping Michigan’s veterans and their families thrive by getting them connected to the benefits and resources they earned for their service.

Established in 2013, the MVAA is a people-driven agency. We consider ourselves a team in every sense of the word—a team that works well together and covers down for one another. There is no room for egos when serving veterans. We also understand that we don’t operate in a silo, which is why we work hand-in-hand with thousands of veteran-friendly organizations and advocates to support our former service members.

As we enter our second decade of serving veterans, we are just as committed as ever to finding innovative ways to accomplish this mission. We will continue breaking down the barriers veterans face in employment, education, health care and quality of life, and we’ll do it with compassion and purpose. We will serve our veterans like it’s personal. Because for us, it is.
