Mobile Vet Center is reaching out to veterans at risk
The Mobile Vet Center from Memphis, Tenn., will be coming to the outpatient clinic at 3051 William St. in Cape Girardeau from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday. The event is part of the John J. Pershing VA Medical Center's "Homeless Stand-Down." A "stand-down" is a term used in combat, when tired troops are taken from the front lines to relative safety, and fed, clothed and showered. The term was adopted by the VA to represent one of its most successful programs to help homeless veterans. The goal of the stand-down is to be a "one-day, one-stop shop" providing services and resources to veterans who are homeless or at-risk for being homeless. Any service organizations or business wishing to participate contact Kristina Bowlby at 573-778-4724.
