Vet Center to open in Grand Forks, May 31

 

Fargo, N.D. – The Department of Veterans Affairs will open a new Grand Forks Vet Center Outstation, offering the full range of Vet Center Services, on May 31.

The Grand Forks Vet Center Outstation, located at 300 Cherry Street in Grand Forks, North Dakota, will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, providing individual, group, marital/family and bereavement counseling and drug and alcohol referral to combat Veterans, as well as military sexual trauma counseling to all Veterans.

The Grand Forks Vet Center Outstation will also act as a liaison with VA and other community resources to ensure every Veteran receives the help they need. The Grand Forks Vet Center Outstation is completely free of charge and confidential.

“The Department of Veterans Affairs is opening this location to better serve Veterans in Grand Forks and the surrounding area,” said Timothy Teig, Fargo Vet Center Team Leader. “These areas were previously supported by counselors from the Fargo Vet Center, but with the more than 6,000 Veterans in the area, a brick and mortar Vet Center would support Veterans even more by providing more opportunities to receive the services they have earned and deserve.”

Both walk-ins and appointments are welcome. For more information, call the new Grand Forks Vet Center Outstation at (701) 306-4669.
