The Union County Board of Chosen Freeholders have launched a new online resource center webpage for Veterans at www.ucnj.org/uc-hero
The webpage is part of Union County Freeholder Chairman Bruce H. Bergen’s “UC HERO” initiative for 2016 in honor of Veterans and is a guide to services at the different levels of government, including County Government. The “UC HERO” initiative involves outreach, as well as raising awareness about available services for Veterans through various County agencies, including the County’s Office of Veterans’ Affairs, the County Clerk, the Division on Aging, health and mental health referral services, and job opportunities through the Workforce Innovation Business Center.
“We owe an unending debt of gratitude to all the brave men and women who have made a great sacrifice for our country and committed themselves to maintaining our freedom,” said Freeholder Bruce H. Bergen. “We’ve designed this webpage to serve as a helpful guide for Veterans at all stages of life.”
The webpage contains links for the Federal Veterans Administration, various State and County agencies, retirement planning, transportation, education, job training, health care, mental health services, end of life planning, and more.
