The Veterans of Foreign Wars, Downriver Post No. 7487, announced the Mobile Veterans Center service vehicle will be in Lewiston on Saturday, April 1.

From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., the van will be at the VFW's meeting location, the community room of Lower Niagara Moose Lodge No. 584, 112 S. Water St. VFW Commander Bill Justyk said all veterans are invited to use this important resource. VFW membership is not required.

Congress established the Veterans Center program in 1979 in order to address the need to provide assistance to veterans experiencing readjustment problems. These problems continue now for a new generation of veterans.

The Mobil Center brings state-of-the art communications resources to small communities throughout the state. It is the place to obtain information and detailed referrals to assist veterans and their families in the process of readjustment to civilian life. Individual and group counseling, sexual trauma counseling, and marital and family counseling are offered in a small, private setting. No appointment is needed.

Guidance in applying for VA benefits is an important element of the center's work. Additionally, the Mobile Veterans Center can assist veterans with employment opportunities and referrals to community resources and educational opportunities targeted to veterans. It brings this help to veterans free of charge and with the promise of complete confidentiality and privacy.
