The Nevada Office of Veterans Services (NOVS) Veterans Outreach "ROVER" Program will visit the Reno Senior Center on 9th Street to reach out to veterans in the area that may not have easy access to the South Meadows offices. Veterans and military personnel will be able to meet with a Veterans Service Officer (VSO) learn about benefits and services they may be eligible for but unaware of.
"Though we have VSOs in Reno, the walk-in veterans simply don't allow staff to get to veterans and family in the area that don't have accessibility to our offices, "said Executive Deputy Director Kat Miller. "We have a high concentration of veterans in the Reno area, and we need to assist not only those that can drive to our location, but to try and make it easy for those less mobile."
Location: Wednesday, March 27 - Reno Senior Center, 1155 East 9th St. - 10am - 12pm
