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:

  1. Housing Issues/Homelessness
  2. VA Health Care Services
  3. Jobs & Finances
  4. VA Benefits - Claims/Appeals Process
  5. 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.
