Ruppersberger Helps Open New One-Stop Veterans Assistance Center in Dundalk

Press Release

Location: Baltimore, MD

Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger (D-MD) yesterday joined Senator Ben Cardin and local veterans for the official ribbon cutting of the new Baltimore County -- Dundalk Vet Center. The center serves as a one-stop shop for a broad range of counseling, outreach and referral services to help veterans transition back to civilian life. Services such as PTSD assessments, marriage counseling and substance abuse help are available at the center free to veterans and their family members.

The event also marked the official debut of Baltimore's new mobile Vets Center, which puts the same services on wheels. The vehicle features a counseling center, two private offices and flat screen TVs and is driven full-time by a veteran.

"Many elected officials will tell you that taking care of our veterans and their families is one of their highest priorities, but I see it as an obligation," said Congressman Ruppersberger. "For many veterans lucky enough to return home, actions that seem basic to most of us -- like communicating with your spouse, holding down a job, getting a good night sleep -- can become challenging. This new Vet Center and mobile Vet Center will help our local heroes overcome these obstacles and get their lives back."
