Veterans Resource Fair: Annual Kingman Fair to Offer Services to US Military Veterans | Kingman Daily Miner

From housing and employment to benefits and more, U.S. Army Veterans will have access to many resources at an upcoming Veterans Resource Fair scheduled from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Friday, the 28th. January at Mohave County Fairgrounds, 2600 Fairgrounds Blvd.

Pat Farrell, chairman of the Jerry Ambrose Veterans Council, said this month’s fair was organized by JAVC in coordination with Kingman Elks Lodge No. 468. It is the third local resource fair held in Kingman after the decision to locate events as opposed to holding resource fairs in the tri-state.

“Well, COVID-19 has put a damper on everything that is going on around us,” Farrell said. “But I expect up to 100 veterans will show up this year.”

This is an increase of nearly 40 attendees from the last Resource Fair held in Kingman in March 2021. This fair, like previous fairs, will allow veterans to connect with a variety of resources and programs. .

“Everything from housing to jobs,” Farrell said. “We’re going to have courts there, and the Veterans Resource Center will be there for veterans who have combat experience and who may need help with PTSD. “

There will also be a benefits advisor at the fair, which Farrell says is always in high demand.

“That hasn’t changed,” he said of benefits when asked what services veterans flock to the fairs. “The benefits are significant. “

Additional resources that will appear at the fair include extra clothing, spiritual services, and food.

“We’ll have a hot meal for them,” Farrell said.

Veterans who wish to participate but do not have access to transportation should contact [email protected] to arrange trips to and from the event.

“Don’t be afraid to ask for help,” Farrell said. “There might be something you never considered that could help you.”
