This is a wonderful opportunity for the veterans in our community to receive free employment and job training guidance. More than 30 government agencies and social services organizations will be offering education and recovery-based services, as well as information about an array of benefits available to veterans. Medical, dental, eye care, hearing and mental health screenings – as well as free clothing – will also be provided.
