DENVER — A new center opened in Denver Friday that has a mission to fight homelessness among military veterans.

Governor John Hickenlooper joined folks from the Daniels Fund and Volunteers of America to celebrate the event.

More of our Veteran neighbors will receive the help and support they need thanks to the Bill Daniels Veteran Services Center,” said Hickenlooper.

The Bill Daniels Veteran Services Center will function as a central location for veterans and their families. It will house Volunteers of America programs designed specifically to help homeless veterans.

It’s also home to up to 20 other organizations that serve our vets.
