Quad Cities Veterans Experience Action Center
Did you know that we have more than 25,000 veterans living in Scott and Rock Island Counties? And if we extend our line to include four more area counties, the number increases to more than 60,000 veterans! That's a lot of veterans who have done their duty. Now it's our duty to make sure they have what they need and deserve.
This event will have a significant and lasting impact on the lives of veterans in our community. The Quad Cities Veterans Experience Action Center (QCVEAC) is a collaboration between the Quad Cities Community Veterans Engagement Board, UnityPoint Health - Trinity, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, state, county, and local organizations, and the community. This grassroots effort will provide veterans the means to resolve any pending or new issues they may have by providing a one-stop shop where they can access in person VA and community resources over two days.
The first event of its kind in our area, the event will provide:
The event will be held July 19 & 20 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day at St. Ambrose University, Wellness & Recreation Center, 518 W. Locust St., Davenport, Iowa. Parking is available off W. Lombard Street.
