The SLO Veterans Services Collaborative (SVSC) is bringing together all our local veterans services and community resources into one big day. Veterans, Active Military and their Families will find the contacts they need to secure VA benefits, to find better employment and to get information with housing rentals and purchases.  We will have workshops on spousal rights, education opportunities, health clinics, financial planning and more.  There will be games for kids, activities for spouses and food available.

Registrations for resources, agencies or groups who wish to provide or attend this event, begin immediately.  Please keep an eye out for registration forms coming by email or feel free to contact us anytime.
