The Veterans Resource Center of Whidbey Island has found a new home, enabling it to consolidate three existing facilities to one location.

All services, programs and VRC operations are now located on the lower floor of American Legion Post 141 at 14096 Hwy. 525 in Bayview.

During the transition, drop-in hours for visitors will be from noon to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday. The veterans support group will meet from 6 to 7:30 p.m. each Tuesday.

The VRC, which is a community-based nonprofit organization, helps veterans, their families and community members to understand the challenges of returning to civilian life from combat and/or military service and provides the support for this to happen in a positive way.

Donations and in-kind contributions go to serve the needs of veterans and their families in Island County communities. Call 360-331-8081, email info@vrcwi.com or go to vetsresourcecenter.org for information. Volunteers are always appreciated. Contributions can be mailed to the Veterans Resource Center, P.O. Box 85, Freeland, WA 98249.
