Local Nonprofit Working To Open All Inclusive Dan Gyllenskog Veterans Resource Center
The Dan Gyllenskog Veterans Resource Center hosted an open house for the public to preview the first-of-its-kind, all-inclusive “home” for veterans to seek assistance in Logan on Wednesday.
“At CAPSA, there’s a home for domestic violence,” said CEO Phil Redlinger. “For employment, you go to the Department of Workforce Services. There’s The Family Place, and if you’ve had trauma resiliency, you go there, right? … We’ve recognized the importance of these services, and we know we need to have some here, so we’re gonna do it.”
The center will combine multiple agencies in one location to make it easier for veterans to get help, whether it has to do with furthering education, mental or physical health, homelessness or accessibility. Read the rest of the story on HJnews.com.
