Veterans Stand Down provides services Sept. 20

Volunteers of America is proud to work with the Office of Veterans Affairs to host the Homeless Veteran Stand Down in Billings Wednesday, Sept. 20, 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Shrine Auditorium at 1125 Broadwater Ave.  
Military veterans and their families are invited to attend the free Billings event to learn about services available and access other assistance in one location. 
 “We want to make local veterans aware of the services that we have in place for them,” said Bill Holder, VOA Director of Veteran Services. “The need for our services is great, in Billings, and we want to get the word out to veterans that we are here for them.”
 The event is hosted by Volunteers of America in coordination with VA Montana Health Care System and VA staff. More than 30 veterans service providers will be on hand offering services and assistance to veterans, including information about employment, housing assistance, legal services, VA benefits, social security and other programs. Medical staff will be on site to provide free flu shots, the Metra Broadwater Line is free for veterans going to and from the stand down, and a free lunch will be served to veterans.
