More than 40 people participate in service member outreach event

The Southside Wellness Coalition in partnership with the Clarksville VFW and the Community Engagement Partners from U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs hosted a special event Thursday, Feb. 29, for veterans and their families to better assess their needs in our community.

The event was catered by Dennis Damiens and his team from the American Legion and was free to attend.

Over 40 people participated in the event and the feedback received will be used to influence local programs and potential funding.

A special thanks to Southside Behavioral Health, the Virginia Poison Center, Resilient Pathways and Virginia Department of Veterans Services in South Hill for participating in this important event.

The Southside Wellness Coalition is proud to serve those who so bravely served us.
