Lake Land College will host a Mobile Veterans Center on April 10 and 11 on the Lake Land College campus in Mattoon. College students who are veterans as well as community members who are veterans are encouraged to come participate in the activities the center offers.
The Mobile Veteran Center is the latest effort by Department of Veterans Affairs to reach the underserved veteran populations of rural America. Its primary mission is to help veterans readjust to civilian life
The Mobile Veteran Center will be parked outside of the Luther Student Center, on the west side of the building. For a map of the campus, visit: www.lakeland.cc.il.us/campusmap/campus.cfm.
The unit has two confidential counseling areas on either end, with a waiting room in the center. The internet satellite and onboard generator assures that Veteran Center counselors will have real time access to the veteran’s VA records on a secure system. Additionally, a video conferencing system allows face-to-face visits between the veteran and a Veterans Affairs Medical Center health provider.
On April 10, the center will be on campus from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on April 11, it will be on campus from 8 a.m. to noon.
