North Las Vegas breaks ground on veteran resource center
by Steve Wolford
LAS VEGAS (KSNV) — The City of North Las Vegas broke ground Tuesday morning on a new facility that will be dedicated to helping military veterans and active-duty personnel in all aspects of their lives, as well as giving them a safe and comfortable atmosphere to relax. Planners say the 2,000 square-foot Veterans Resource Center will cost just under $500-thousand, and financed with federal funding from the American Rescue Plan. It will also become the first facility of its kind in Nevada that will be owned and operated by a city government.
“We’ve been working to get a safe haven, a resource center for veterans, for two, three, four years,” said Marine Corps veteran Tyrone Jones. A place, Jones says, where vets can “work on aspects of their lives as far as research jobs. They can research mental health.”
