NYServes – Upstate Ribbon Cutting Event
NYServes-Upstate kicked off our network launch today with a packed house at the Veterans Outreach Center! All local news stations were represented. Today’s speakers included Todd Baxter, VOC’s Executive Director, Senator Rich Funke, Assemblyman Harry Bronson and Rachael Volpe, Coordination Center Team Leader.
Remarks were inspiring and centered around a call for coordination to better serve service members, veterans and their families. Guests included many providers in the network including Clear Path for Veterans and WNY Heroes, the Chairman of VOC’s Board Don Reeve, and several other providers and community members- a couple of which approached us to be onboarded into the network.
The event turnout and outcome today was reflective of VOC’s work to bring together local providers and leaders around this initiative. Congratulations to Veterans Outreach Center on the launch of the Upstate network!
