Members of organization Project Outreach of Westerly will have a table set up outside the library's Old Main Reading Room the second Friday of every month from 10-11 am. They will be there to aid veterans in navigating available benefits and other services.
The mission of Project Outreach is to assist all veterans to gain access to the VA and eligibility for all benefits and programs they offer. The program is staffed by certified Chapter Service Officers that have attended the yearly Disabled American Veterans training. The service officer provides the proper VA forms and guidance to properly complete required documents to then ensure that they have proper representation at the VA. If a veteran is not in the VA system, he/she or their family are not eligible for all the great services and benefits the VA offers.
