COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) -- A Colorado Springs group is launching the Peak Military Care Network to make it easier for military personnel, veterans and their families to find the help they need.

The group is launching a pilot program in January to improve communication among service providers and expand and promote its website, which catalogs a wide range of services.

Kate Hatten, executive director of the network, says the idea is to allow people to quickly see the full range of help available, including health care, housing, employment, education, legal services and more.

It will also allow individual service providers to see what others are doing.

The network's website is in place. It had 400,000 hits between July and September 2012, up from 97,000 a year earlier.
