Frequently Asked Questions

For Soldiers, Veterans, Families and Caregivers

How do I find a service dog?

Service dogs are a specific category in the Community Support Network (CSN) Directory of Services and Resources. Go to the CSN “Service Dogs” page.  All participating organizations have been advised that they must comply with Army Directive 2013-01 to appear in this heading. The “Animals” heading provides additional resources such as “assistance” and “companion” animals.

How do I search for an organization that’s in my community?

In the future, we have plans to update the CSN database to be searchable by geography. Currently, each organization has information listed below their name to indicate the areas they serve.  To search for an organization, go to http://www.WCT.army.mil/support network/index.html. The left-hand side of the screen contains a menu. Within that menu, you can search for organizations by name or by category. To search by name, select the “Alphabetical List” hyperlink. To search by category, select the category of goods or services you are looking for, and a page containing the organizations providing the goods or services you are looking for will open.

Am I allowed to use goods and services from organizations in my local community that are not members of the CSN?

Yes. The CSN offers a directory of organizations that have applied and met the guidelines for participation in the CSN.  While the directory is regularly updated, it is not exhaustive of all of the resources that may be available in your community. If you identify a resource or organization in your community that you think would be helpful to other wounded, ill and injured Soldiers or Veterans, please refer them or contact us for further consideration.

Does the Army back/endorse the organizations listed in the CSN directory?

No. Participants in the CSN are external organizations that have agreed to specific terms and conditions in order to be a participant of CSN.  AW2, Warrior Care and Transition, the U.S. Army and the U.S. Department of Defense do not endorse these organizations and are not responsible for the content of their websites.

Does CSN screen participating organizations?

 Yes.  A routine check is done on each organization that submits a registration request to become a member of the CSN.  This check is done to ensure the organization is not listed on the State Department’s Anti-Terrorism Watch List and they have an overall satisfactory rating with different agencies including:  Better Business Bureau (BBB), Charity Navigator, GuideStar and others.  While the CSN Program Manager also checks for reviews and ratings from additional sources, the U.S. Army Medical Command Deputy Chief of Staff for Warrior Care and Transition (DCS, WCT) cannot guarantee or endorse any organization and recommends all individuals do their own research before engaging with any organization.  If an organization does not meet and maintain a standard level of performance, they will not be allowed to participate in the CSN.  Your organization evaluations and feedback are important tools which help us monitor the performance of participants of the CSN program.

Does CSN solicit organizations for participation?

 No.  All organizations that register with CSN have been referred or have found and approached CSN on their own accord.
