Serve Denton welcomes our newest tenant to the Assistance and Events Center, the Denton County Veterans Coalition. This 501(c)(3) organization has made great leaps towards improving the quality of veterans’ and their families’ lives in the past three years. The DCVC’s purpose is to connect veterans’ and their families’ needs with solutions and resources that are available around the Denton County area. DCVC Executive Director Chris Martin says, “Denton County has well over 46,000 veterans. It is estimated that as many as 10,000 may be suffering from the visible and invisible wounds of war.” These immense numbers only help to show why DCVC is a needed resource in our community.
Before moving into the Serve Denton Assistance Center, DCVC operated out of Texas Workforce Commission, homes, or coffee shops. Serve Denton, knowing the trials that come alongside growing a young organization, believes the Denton County Veterans Coalition will be a great asset to fulfilling the rungs of our self-sufficiency ladder, including social support.
The Denton County Veterans Coalition is excited to move into the Serve Denton office because it will offer their organization a place to establish a “home” where veterans in need can come for help.
If you are a veteran or a family member of a veteran and have immediate needs, you can fill out this form on the DCVC website, http://bit.ly/1efwce5. You can learn more about the Denton County Veterans Coalition by visiting their website, veteransofdentoncounty.org.
