Keeping Military Families Connected in Tennessee
The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Centerstone is ensuring veterans and veteran service organizations are up to speed on resources amidst current physical distancing challenges. The clinic hosted a virtual Veteran Services Town Hall this month in an effort to keep military families and community partners connected in their time of need.
“In light of today’s COVID-19 environment we realize that some military families may not be aware of what services are available to them or how to go about obtaining those resources,” Meghan Williams, the clinic’s outreach director said. “Now, maybe more than ever, we want to make sure our veterans and their families are taken care of. This town hall will help support that mission.”
The one-hour webinar featured panelists from various service organizations including Urban Ministries, the Vet Center, Blue Star Families, Team Unbroken and the Montgomery County Veterans Coalition.
“Each agency discussed how they’ve adapted to physical distancing guidelines as well as how they plan to move forward and continue providing their valuable services to our military community,” Williams said. “Our sister Cohen Clinic in Jacksonville, FL, recently hosted a similar virtual event with very positive feedback. We wanted to do the same for those here in our community.”
