Veterans Collaborative welcomes VA representatives.
Representatives from the VA Sierra Nevada Healthcare System completed an informative session for the Plumas County Veterans collaborative April 19 in Quincy. They gave an update on the many services available at the Reno VA facility and the status of their efforts to bring more outpatient service to Plumas veterans.
The group had a candid and constructive conversation about increasing health benefits for area veterans.

If there was one thing to take away from the Veterans Collaborative meeting March 8, it was the continued emphasis on getting Plumas County vets to register with the Veterans Services Office in order to both receive services and be counted.
The volunteer collaborative is off to a strong start with partnerships beginning with various agencies concerned about veteran welfare in the county. The collaborative also has established a list of priorities to focus on — and right now it’s all about standing up and being counted as veterans in the first place.
