The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and bear the deepest wounds and scars of war – General Douglas MacArthur
Veteran Resource Center
Lacey’s House provides a community based resource and referral center, Veterans Resource Center, (VRC), that provides access to both VA and community services to help veterans prevent or end homelessness. Lacey’s House offers camaraderie and a safe, clean environment to local vets for the day. At the VRC veterans can come and receive cold weather gear, employment assistance, basic toiletries, a warm meal, and connection to many resources in our local area.
Jim Palmer, an experienced Veteran Service Officer, is available at Lacey’s House most days the VRC is open. Please stop by or call Jim with any questions or concerns with any of your Veteran benefits concerns.
Walk-in Hours: 10 am-2 pm Monday through Friday. We will be closed Tuesday December 24th, & Tuesday December 31st, 2013.
