How Can We Help?

The Western Slope Veterans Coalition named the resource center after local veterans Jesse Beckius and Casey Owens to personalize the facility and remind the community that the scars of war are not always obvious. It is our obligation to help and support the 0.7 percent of the population who make the sacrifice to ensure that our country maintains the freedoms that we enjoy.

Our mission is to improve the quality of life for service members, veterans, and their families. The Western Slope Veterans Coalition (WSVC) needs your help to make this the best resource for veterans. Volunteer your time with us or with our community partners to help us support you. Members of the WSVC and its supporters are county executives, community leaders, volunteers, business owners, local corporations, banks, restaurants, and concerned citizens working together with veterans to facilitate access to services, education, employment, life needs, and more.

About the WSVC

Within our valley’s, a strong grassroots effort is underway to reach out to veterans and their families

A Veteran – whether active duty, discharged, retired or reserve – is someone who, at some point in time, wrote a blank check made payable to The United States of America, for an amount up to and including their life.

Phone calls may not be returned immediately, so please be patient. We will contact you as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience.

Welcome Home!

Making the change from active duty to veteran status can be challenging. Family and friends may have a difficult time understanding that the person they once knew, is not that same person any more. It’s important to find people you can talk to, someone who you can identify with. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a veteran, but that can make it easier.
