Veteran Service Organizations Stay Connected to Serve
Once again, Northeast Florida veterans and their families can trust local veteran service organizations stand ready to support them thanks to a recent town hall.
The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Centerstone hosted the second in a series of Northeast Florida Military Veteran Virtual Town Halls last month featuring a number of organizations dedicated to ensuring local military families get the best possible care.
“The first town hall was a huge success,” Elizabeth Sherr, Director of the Cohen Clinic at Centerstone, said. “We originally wanted to create a space where those who provide services to our veterans can come together to learn more about each other and we did that. This second time around featured different organizations and held the same positive results – giving us all even more information so we can best serve our military families.”
The second iteration of the Town Hall included representatives from Northeast Florida Women Veterans, Five Star Veterans Center, United Way of Northeast Florida and Mission United, Duval County Veterans Treatment Court, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Each organization took time to explain how their respective agencies were adapting to COVID 19 operating guidelines as well as what services they continue to provide; many admitting the virtual realm has become a new normal for the time being, but it hasn’t stopped them from being there for veterans in need.
The Cohen Clinic at Centerstone plans to host another virtual Town Hall in September. For more information on that event stay tuned to the clinic’s Facebook page.
