Gila River AmeriCorps Program


The District 5 Veterans Building opened its doors this past month to serve veterans and military families in the Community.


Service members with the Gila River AmeriCorps Program – Veterans Serving Veterans (VSV) are stationed at the Veterans Building throughout the week for any veteran or family member of a veteran needing assistance. Member services include: assistance with Veterans Affairs (VA) paperwork, resource research, resource referrals, military records requests, and a variety of other veteran related services.


The AmeriCorps members are part of a community-wide initiative to provide resource navigation and information services to veterans and their families. In addition to providing research, AmeriCorps members also have regular Coffee Clubs and “get to know you” events in districts throughout the Community.    


The Veterans Building’s hours of operation are from 8:30 a.m.–4:30 p.m., and is located near the D5 Multipurpose building. Look for the American flag flying outside and come visit!
