All Veterans, Service Members, and their families are invited to the first Public Forum sponsored by Your Veteran Community Outreach & Action Team (COAT) on Thursday, April 20 from 5:30pm-7:30pm at the Blasco Library. This public forum is dedicated to connecting the Veteran and military community to local resources.
During the forum, local experts will provide a brief overview of:
- Housing Issues/Homelessness
- VA Health Care Services
- Jobs & Finances
- VA Benefits - Claims/Appeals Process
- Veterans Miracle Center
Following the brief overview, Your Veteran COAT will host a networking and resource fair open to Veterans interested in learning more about available resources. Veterans are encouraged to bring a copy of their DD-214 to help determine eligibility for various services.
Your Veteran COAT is a newly established MyVA Community Engagement Board focused on advocating, empowering, connecting, and coordinated resources for Veterans and military families throughout Northwestern PA.
