The U.S. Department of Veterans’ Affairs Springfield Mobile Vet Center will visit Mattoon on Tuesday April 19. Vet Center staff will be in attendance from 10:00am to 3:00pm at Lake Land College behind the Luther Student Center at 5001 Lake Land Boulevard to answer questions about Vet Center services. The Vet Center staff encourages all veterans to come learn more about Vet Center and VA programs that they may be eligible for.
Mobile Vet Center Outreach staff consists of outreach specialists and readjustment counselors. Most of them are veterans and are trained and certified to assist veterans, family members and the general public on a first-come, first-served basis on a wide range of veteran issues to make appropriate referrals and provide counseling services on post-war readjustment. They will be speaking with veterans from all eras and encourage all veterans to come learn more about the VA programs, benefits and support that they may be eligible for, and what our Mobile Vet Center can offer.
The Vet Center program is a division of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. We welcome home war veterans with honor by providing quality readjustment counseling in a caring manner. Vet Center staff understands and appreciate veterans’ war experiences, while assisting them and their family members toward a successful post-war adjustment in or near their community. Vet Centers provide individual, family, and group counseling services for combat-related readjustment as well as military sexual trauma (MST). Vet Centers also provide bereavement counseling services to surviving parents, spouses, children and siblings of service members.
Vet Centers respect the privacy of all clients, and we hold information in strictest confidence. No information will be communicated to any person or agency without written consent except in necessary circumstances to avert a crisis.
