What is The Coming Home Project?

The Coming Home Project is an effort by the School of Social Work at Monmouth University to recognize and prepare social work students and community practitioners to meet the needs of returning career, reservist, and National Guard military personnel and their families. While remaining invested in social work’s historic commitment to work for peace, we are also cognizant of our duty to serve vulnerable populations, such as persons who have experienced combat either directly or indirectly.

Initiatives for 2019-2020

  1. Statewide Community Reintegration Survey for Post 9/11 veterans living in New Jersey.
  2. Best Practices Inventory (BPI) of Educational Institutions serving military-connected student in New Jersey (with community partners NJAVPA and NJCSVE).
  3. Quarterly Veteran Claims and Resources Clinics.
  4. Support of military-connected student and social work student research.
