Veterans from across central North Carolina are encouraged to attend a major event that can help them out: the 2023 Veterans Benefit Live/VA in My Town event.
The three-day affair will be hosted at The Lofts at Congdon Yards in High Point from Thursday, July 20 to Saturday, July 22.
Over the three-day period, veterans will get a chance to have all their questions answered in order to be assured they’re getting the assistance they need from a wide variety of services being offered through the VA Regional Office.
The annual event – which is dedicated “to the overall well-being of our veterans” – is being hosted by the Guilford County Veterans Services Office, the Heroes Center, High Point Veterans Initiative, Business High Point -Chamber of Commerce, and Visit High Point.
It’s completely free and veterans will get one-on-one assistance with benefits and disability claims. Also, new this year, the event includes information about the Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics Act – an act meant to ensure veterans stay informed about important developments regarding their benefits.
The 2023 Veterans Benefits Live event will also feature a lot of vendors and community partners who are committed to making a positive impact on Veteran’s lives.
Services offered include mental health resources, support for veterans experiencing homelessness, information on low-income housing, home loan opportunities and other resources designed to benefit veterans and their families.
