Veterans in Western New York will find it easier to access an array of services after a Veterans One-stop Center opened Monday in Buffalo. Center services include Department of Veterans Affairs and non-VA benefits counseling, housing and emergency services, case management that integrates services for veterans with multiple needs, employment resources and readjustment counseling services, reports the Buffalo News. The primary benefit of the center is that veterans no longer will need to travel all over town in pursuit of different services, Roger Hoffman, board chairman of Goodwill Industries of Western New York and a founding partner of the center, told the paper. “The idea is to replace a bus ride with a walk down the hall and a soft hand-off,” Hoffman said. Funds for the center are coming from a variety of nonprofit sources.
