Northern Nevada Veterans Resource Center (NNVRC), the first site established by the Veterans Resource Centers of America outside the state of California, opened its doors on October 1, 2012.
The site provides low income & extremely low income veterans assistance through the Department of Veterans Affairs, Supportive Services for Veterans and Families (SSVF) grant which focuses on homelessness prevention and rapid re-housing.
NNVRC offers veterans and their family members case management and assistance in getting other public benefits as well as temporary financial assistance on behalf of veterans for rent payments, utility payments, security deposits and moving costs.
Recently, NNVRC has partnered with Washoe County to begin the Veteran Service Officers program. This program provides for two Veteran Service Officers (VSO) to be permanently assigned to the site and assist Veterans in applying and obtaining VA benefits.
