Las Vegas, Nev. – During Veterans Day Weekend, U.S. Senator Catherine Cortez Masto (D-Nev.) joined local leaders to discuss important programs available for Nevada veterans and their families at the North Las Vegas Veterans & Community Resource Center, which she helped create through the American Rescue Plan. The first facility of its kind, the Center offers Southern Nevada veterans with a range of critical resources—including assistance accessing VA health and disability benefits, mental health services, job training, and financial planning. Nevada veterans can get more information at this link or visit the Center Monday-Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
“Nevada is proud to be home to so many veterans who fought to keep our nation safe, and it’s on us to make sure they have the support and services they earned right here in our communities,” said Senator Cortez Masto. “The North Las Vegas Veterans and Community Resource Center is providing our veterans with essential services, helping them find housing and good-paying jobs while ensuring they can access their VA benefits. I’ll continue to deliver the federal resources our state needs to support our veterans and their families.”
Senator Cortez Masto has spent her career fighting for Nevada veterans and is leading bipartisan legislation to help disabled veterans afford accessibility improvements in their homes. Last year she wrote and passed the Brian Neuman Act to remove roadblocks for disabled veterans accessing their benefits, passed the PACT Act to ensure veterans suffering from toxic exposure in the line of duty get the medical care they need, and worked across the aisle to get legislation helping veterans exposed to Agent Orange and expanding benefits for women veterans signed into law.
