Getting a referral to a job service, or an unemployment office, took too much time for San Diegans who live in county rural areas and had to travel to a central county office, the VA Medical Center in La Jolla, or the San Diego VA office. Additiona veterans services staff, on January 1st, started serving veterans at the El Cajon library. A location near Lakeside, and Santee.

Veterans living out in Escondido and San Pasqual, even as far out as Borrego Springs, still need help getting veterans benefits, or, settling into a regular work life in San DIego. The county's veterans services office already reorganized the staff workload, and the services the staff handle. Fifteen part time staff were hired to help the five regular staff members.

County supervisors still plan on additional expansions in the service delivery locations. Three more libraries, including the Julian library, have been identified as potential service sites. Library representativves agreed the libraries have space.

THe county's veterans services office stays prepared to pick up volunteers, and staff the three new service locations.

This is a Center Line Policy Alert.
