DVS Hosts “Lunch & Learn” Online Discussions DVS co-hosted Lunch & Learn online discussions earlier this month featuring the New Mexico Film Office and the New Mexico Veterans Integration Centers.
These monthly discussions provide an opportunity for veterans service and community service organizations to share information with the state’s veteran community about how their programs can help New Mexico’s veterans and their families.
The Dec. 6 discussion with the film office centered on its Operation Sound Stage—a program that seeks qualified veterans for the many behind-the-scenes jobs in the state’s booming film and TV production industry.
The program offers orientation classes to help with the process. More information can be found at https://nmfilm.com/operation-soundstage-oss/. On Dec. 10, representatives from the New Mexico Veterans Integration Centers discussed how it helps homeless and at-risk veterans.
More than just a homeless shelter, “the VIC” is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization that is an invaluable resource for veterans and their families providing a multitude of services including multiple housing assistance options, peer support, food and nutrition, and case management services to Veterans, their families and the community.
More information can be found at https://www.nmvic.org/. Below are the next scheduled Lunch & Learn discussions, which are scheduled 11 a.m. to noon and may be accessed by the following Zoom link: https://nmdvs-org.zoom.us/j/98103253190
