New Drop-In Facility that Welcomes Veterans and Agencies that Serve Military Families
Welcome to our new Veteran One Stop website! We hope you will have a chance to visit our “bricks and mortar” version in Waco, Texas.
The Veteran One Stop was opened in January 2013 to provide a central location where anyone who has served our country in uniform – and their families – may seek and receive help for a variety of needs.
Real Help from Real People
What is a “One Stop”?
This collaborative community resource center is designed to assist military families with issues ranging from pensions and benefits, employment and education, social services and mental health needs, housing and legal matters and more… all in a warm, safe and inviting atmosphere.
Trained veterans volunteers will help other veterans find the right people at the right agencies in a way that is informed by first-hand knowledge and experience: by veterans, for veterans.
With a variety of agencies in one location, veterans are more likely to know about services and benefits and have the opportunity to access them, if appropriate. A single location minimizes time and fuel consumption to get to providers, and can shorten the length of time needed to reach and use services, perhaps with an “across the hall” referral that can improve outcomes simply by reducing delays and frustration and accelerating access.
Call or come by today to see if we can help, or just to drop in, and share a cup of coffee with a fellow veteran!
