Council Member Jarvis Johnson hosting a Veteran’s Benefit Seminar. Free to the public! Please support!

Dear Veteran Community Supporter,

All Americans owe a debt of gratitude to the men and women who are serving and have served in the Armed Forces of the United States. Many service members and their families have made sacrifices to protect the democratic values that we in the United States hold sacred. Therefore, we must provide services and opportunities in an effort to give back some of what they have lost. As a result, I am pleased that the City of Houston, the Voice of Veterans (VOV) Committee for District B, Houston Veteran Administration, Texas Southern University, University of Houston Veterans Affairs, Coalition for the Homeless of Houston/Harris County, Inc. and the Department of Veteran Affairs Center for Minority Veterans have joined together to invite you, to participate in the Veteran’s Benefit Seminar.

We are reaching out to all veterans in need of information as well as resources that will enable them to live and enjoy a better life. Please come and learn about the many community services, educational interest and entrepreneurial opportunities that are available for veterans. THIS SEMINAR IS FREE.

The goal of the event is to foster an atmosphere to network and share information with stakeholders within local, state and federal governments as well as establishing partnerships with resources within the City of Houston.

The event will be held at: West Gray Adaptive Recreation Center
Location: 1475 West Gray, Houston, Texas 77019
Exhibit Time: Free Health Screening 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Seminar Time: 12:30 p.m. until 6:00 p.m.
