Lake Land College to host Mobile Veterans Center

Lake Land College will host a Mobile Veterans Center on April 10 and 11 on the Lake Land College campus in Mattoon. College students who are veterans as well as community members who are veterans are encouraged to come participate in the activities the center offers. 

The Mobile Veteran Center is the latest effort by Department of Veterans Affairs to reach the underserved veteran populations of rural America. Its primary mission is to help veterans readjust to civilian life.  This is accomplished by helping the veteran identify problems or issues and then offering individual, family and group counseling.  The Mobile Veteran Center provides readjustment counseling and outreach services to all veterans who served in any combat zone.  Services are also available for family members, concerning military related issues.

“We are pleased to offer this service to veterans and their family members in the Lake Land College district,” said Tina Stovall, vice president for student services. “At Lake Land College, we strive to meet the diverse needs of all of our students, and this is just one way we can reach out to and include our veterans.”

The Mobile Veteran Center will be parked outside of the Luther Student Center, on the west side of the building. For a map of the campus, visit: www.lakeland.cc.il.us/campusmap/campus.cfm. 

The unit has two confidential counseling areas on either end, with a waiting room in the center.  The internet satellite and onboard generator assures that Veteran Center counselors will have real time access to the veteran’s VA records on a secure system. Additionally, a video conferencing system allows face-to-face visits between the veteran and a Veterans Affairs Medical Center health provider. 

On April 10, the center will be on campus from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and on April 11, it will be on campus from 8 a.m. to noon.
