Quad Cities Regional Services for Veterans Project
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.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, we're transforming the way we provide this service to continue making a significant and lasting impact on the lives of veterans in our community while maintaining the health and safety of our community.
Instead of hosting an in-person event, complete the online survey tool between October 1 - November 19 to choose which services you'd like to receive. Then, our team of partners will reach out to you directly to provide the services you've requested. The survey takes just 5 minutes to get you connected.
The resource event 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 virtual event will provide:
- VA claims and appeals assistance, including new claims and claim development
- VA healthcare enrollment
- VA burial benefits
- Mental health care coordination services
- Dental screening and care navigation
- Employment, education and relocation services
- Chiropractic care
- Caregiver Support
- And more!
