The mission of the Montgomery County Veterans Coalition is to advocate for our Veteran community through education, collaboration, and resourcing. Sherry Pickering founded our organization in June of 2014 and achieved 501c3 status by Nov 2016. Our organization was inspired by a committee developed by Karla Mullen to educate veteran serving organizations about the resources available in the community. The vision of the Coalition grew to include being a flow of Veteran information, educating all of our community on Veteran issues, and advocating for Veterans and their families.  An important contribution made by MCVC includes identifying veteran related problems, creating, and implementing solutions, with a focus on reducing the duplication of services. As a backbone organization our more than 350 members representing over 200 nonprofits, veterans’ organization, churches, businesses, and governmental agencies. As the City of Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts said, “The most valuable role the Coalition plays is establishing communication among and between agencies serving our veteran community. Without a doubt we are a better community for having a coordinating agency like the Veterans Coalition leading the charge.” 


As of 2020, MCVC has been awarded and continued to maintain the Platinum Transparency rating from Guidestar. As a VA recognized Community Veteran Engagement Board, MCVC works with community and VA leaders alike to spotlight areas of concern for veterans and works to build community capacity to ensure Veteran families have every opportunity needed to thrive in our community.
