Our Impact

San Diego is home to the largest concentration of military in the world and has the third highest
population of military veterans in the United States. Moreover, roughly 20,000 service members
stationed in San Diego transition to civilian life each year. Because of the prevalence and needs of
transitioning service members and their families, zero8hundred is actively working to support service members, recent veterans & spouses overcome any challenges and thrive before, during and after their transition.

Each year, the University of San Diego's Caster Family Center for Nonprofit & Philanthropic Research, has conducted third-party evaluations on the impact of zero8hundred & the populations we serve. Read those findings below.
