IVCC is partnering with Veterans Center

OGLESBY — Readjustment counseling technician John Mizer of the Veterans Center in Springfield will present “Keeping the Promise” at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesday at Illinois Valley Community College’s CTC-125.

Mizer’s presentation, focusing on issues faced by combat veterans, is open to the public.

The Mobile Veterans Center (MVC) will be in parking Lot 3 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, too. MVC’s primary mission is to provide outreach to under-served veteran populations and assist families, service providers, military units, schools and all other organizations which have contact with veterans.

Vet Centers serve combat veterans and their families by providing a continuum of quality care such as professional readjustment counseling, community education, outreach to special populations, the brokering of services with community agencies and providing a link between veterans and other services within the U.S. Dept. of Veterans Affairs.

For more information, contact IVCC financial aid and veteran’s advisor Ida Brown at 815-224-0200 or ida_brown@ivcc.edu.
