The Mission of the Yellow Ribbon Registry Network (YRRN) is to be a "Network of Nonprofits, People and Information to Assist Military and Veteran Families Recover".

The YRRN will:

Facilitate collaboration among nonprofit partner organizations and add value to their mission by offering: a central database of client data, maximizing resources through case management, reducing duplication of services and most importantly helping serve clients more effectively.

Offer the public an opportunity to express their appreciation for the service and sacrifice of our Heroes and their families with financial contributions directed to the specific individuals or organizations they choose to assist.

Present high quality financial literacy through education and counseling that honors the service of our clients, respects their privacy, and promotes long term positive outcomes.

The YRRN believes many Veterans face financial challenges long after they have returned from combat. As the national focus shifts from supporting deployed service members to assisting with the challenges of reintegration, nonprofit organizations must collaborate in order to remain relevant and to sustain public awareness of the issues heroes face when they return home. The combined elements of the YRRN mission provide a solid foundation to make a real difference in the lives of our nation's heroes. The YRRN vision is to meet the evolving needs of more Heroes by exceeding expectations and achieving growth in each element:

Increase the number of responsible partner organizations on the YRRN and continue to enhance the technical capabilities that securely enhance connectivity between organizations, access by Heroes and transparency for donors.

Encourage public and private financial support for the YRRN, its partners and the Heroes it serves by communicating the value and utility of a shared resource with a singular mission.

Expand financial literacy through education and counseling services by the recruitment and training of additional financial counselors who are Veterans or family members of Veterans.
