As a local nonprofit organization, 211 San Diego is the region’s trusted source for information and connections to community, health, and disaster resources. Help is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, and in more than 200 languages. We maintain a database of more than 6,000 services and resources that are updated on a real-time basis and our Community Connectors help connect San Diegans to the accurate information they need.
We believe access to health and social services provides a foundation for individuals and families to build and sustain
healthy lives, so we’re collaborating with service providers in the San Diego region to build a more efficient, equitable, and accessible system that addresses the whole health of a person through integrated, person-centered care.
Their mission is to serve as a link to bring community (organizations) together to help people efficiently access appropriate services.

What We Believe
What We Do
Establishing Partnerships of Collaboration Connecting Veterans & Military Families to the Communities we live in.
Veterans Transition Support (VTS) is an All-Volunteer San Diego and Orange County California based 501(c)(3) Nonprofit created in 2014 to help active duty service members and veterans bridge the gap between military service and civilian life through job training and one-on-one mentoring in career development, education planning and obtaining veteran benefits to launch their next career and prevent veteran suicide, homelessness, unemployment, and family disintegration.
The Veterans Transition Support “Military Transition Training Program” provides no cost professional certification courses and transition resource briefs at the Wounded Warrior Battalion on Camp Pendleton, in San Diego and in San Marcos. Partnerships with the Easter Seals Bob Hope Veterans Support Program and the VetCTAP veteran career management program ensures that all program participants who register for one-on-one assistance are provided with individualized employment support and assistance with resume writing, interviewing techniques, and networking at no cost to the veteran.
Our passion is to help the military community…
I started Vets2Industry to provide a free resource library for the military community – active, guard, reserve, veteran, military-spouse, dependent children, Blue-Star & Gold-Star Families, and caregivers – so they know which organizations provide free services and benefits.
V2I also serves to break the circle of ignorance by listing companies that have opportunities for veterans, those that have specific military hiring programs, those that are on the 100 Military Friendly companies list, and those that selflessly provide Fortune 500 mentors for a year to transitioning service members through their partnership with American Corporate Partners.
The goal is to educate all 220,000 to 240,000 transitioning service members each year and their dependents on free resources to ease their transition and life needs, and more importantly, provide hope.
Vets’ Community Connections (VCC) assists veterans, military and their families in successfully integrating into their community by expanding their local networks and involving all parts of the community.
Wounded Warrior Project (WWP) began in 2003 as a small, grassroots effort providing simple care and comfort items to the hospital bedsides of the first wounded service members returning home from the conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. As their post-service needs evolved, so have our programs and services. Today, through our direct programs in mental health, career counseling, and long-term rehabilitative care, along with our advocacy efforts, we improve the lives of millions of warriors and their families.
This effort requires the passion and commitment of friends, supporters, and like-minded organizations that enable us to fulfill our mission. With their collaboration and support, we strive to ensure that when those who serve come home, they’re afforded every opportunity to be as successful as a civilian as they were in the military.
At Zero8hundred, our goal is to ease the transition from military to civilian life. We are here to connect you to the resources specifically suited to your goals for joining the Southern California civilian workforce and community.
This free individualized support is available 12 months prior to military separation and up to one year post-military separation. The Zero8hundred team are trained Peer Navigators, with lived military experience, who are committed to working alongside transitioning service members to help them design and execute the post-military journey they want.
