The men and women of the military and their families are an important part of our San Diego community. Do your part this month to honor them along with ABC10 and the County of San Diego. Thank them for their service, refer them to the many programs available to them, or volunteer your time. There are many amazing non-profits in San Diego working to serve the military and veteran communities, and they can always use your help.
The county also offers many resources through it's 2-1-1 service, including 'Courage to Call," which provides around-the-clock support, guidance and referral services. Check out more on their web site to connect to services and find out about more opportunities:
San Diego also hosts many wonderful events year-round to offer services to the military. Coming up on November 6th is the "Honor a Hero- Hire a Vet" Job and Resource Fair at Valley View Casino Center. More information here.
Please join ABC10 and Live Well San Diego to honor and support the local military in October and all year long.
ABOUT LIVE WELL
ABC10, and sister station Azteca San Diego 15, are proud to partner with the County of San Diego on the Live Well San Diego initiative.
Live Well San Diego is an initiative of the County of San Diego to improve health and wellness for all residents. It represents a shared vision that can only be accomplished through collaboration across partners from every sector. This vision calls on every resident to take action to improve their own health, safety and well-being, as well as that of their families and neighbors.
There are three parts to Living Well:
- Building Better Health calls for improving the health of all residents and supporting healthy choices
- Living Safely calls for ensuring residents are protected from crime and abuse, neighborhoods are safe and communities are resilient to disasters and emergencies
- Thriving, currently under development, calls for promoting a region in which residents can enjoy the highest quality of life
Live Well San Diego involves everyone. Only through a collective effort—in which all of us work together toward a shared purpose—can meaningful change be achieved in a region as large and diverse as San Diego County.
Recognized Live Well Partners include health care providers, community and faith-based organizations, businesses, school districts and other jurisdictions, including cities, tribal governments and military or veterans organizations.
Local Action, County-Wide Impact.
Live Well San Diego needs leadership from residents to identify priority needs and make long term change. Organizational leaders and community members gather in the County's regions to plan community improvements and address health and safety needs. These teams serve as a central point for action at the local level.
