What Is Our Story?

The Military and Veterans Resource Coalition (MVRC) is a voluntary partnership of military, veteran and civilian organizations.  The organization was initially created in 2008 as WakeCART (Wake Community Area Resource Team) and was associated with its parent organization in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina. In Jane 2011, WakeCART separated from the parent organization and reformed as the MVRC under the auspices of the COPE Foundation, a NC 501(c)(3).

Using a coalition of collaborative partnerships in the Triangle, MVRC bridges the divide between those who served and their families  and the community.

MVRC has applied for it’s own NC 501 C(3) status as of May 2017. As of Jan 2017, MVRC maintains a partner list of  216 organizations.

Who Do We Serve?

The Military and Veterans Resource Coalition (MVRC) serves the military and veteran community in and around Raleigh, NC. MVRC is contacted by veterans, military, families and organizations to assist with finding resources in the local area. We serve organizations who seek further assistance outside of their scope of programs for military/veterans/family. We serve military/veterans/family who are seeking to be connected to organizations that have programs to assist their needs.

MVRC collaborates with local organizations and individuals to host resource and information sharing sessions across the county.

How Do We Serve?

MVRC is where heads, hearts, and actions unite to catalyze impactful relationships, eradicate disconnect, between those who served, their families, and the community.

MVRC functions as a central clearinghouse for the coordination of services and the collaboration of organizations assisting our service members, veterans and their families.

Our goal is to improve awareness of, communication about, and access to supports that enhance well-being during service and in civilian life through collaborations among local organizations and individuals.
