GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. – The Colorado Division of Veterans Affairs-West will conduct a Town Hall to provide the public information about the new Western Region One Source Jan. 24, 2019, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., in Grand Junction.

A state-owned, former Colorado National Guard armory in Grand Junction is the future home of the Western Region One Source, which will help more than 100,000 Colorado service members, veterans, and their families, who live in the 24 counties along the Western Slope, connect with a wide range of community resources.

“With the Governor’s leadership, we will boldly move our state forward to improve the quality of life for our service members, veterans, and their families, making Colorado even more of a military- and veteran-friendly state,” The Adjutant General of Colorado U.S. Air Force Maj. Gen. Michael Loh said.  “The addition of a Western Region One Source will centralize resources under one roof, making it easier for those who serve or have served, and their families, to take that first step in obtaining assistance.”

The Town Hall will be held at the VFW Post #1247, 1404 Ute Avenue, Grand Junction, CO 81501.

Veterans are a growing population across Colorado. More than 400,000 veterans live in Colorado, with about 10 percent living along the Western Slope.

The One Source is close to a major veteran-serving medical facility, the Grand Junction VA Medical Center, which is already a destination for about 15,000 veterans in the western region.

A majority of the design, construction, materials and labor has been sourced from Grand Junction and other communities along the Western Slope. The DMVA is financing most of the renovation which will cost about $3.5 million. The architect, Chamberlin Architects, has an office in Grand Junction. The General Contractor, Asset Engineering, is also Grand Junction-based.

The One Source is scheduled to open its doors May 17, 2019, at 11 a.m., at 482 28 Road, Grand Junction, CO 81501.  The DMVA is accepting sponsorship, partnership and prospective tenant applications. The DMVA needs to raise about $250,000 through sponsorships to cover the cost of furniture and equipment. Community veteran service providers will be able to rent space in the 14,000-square-foot facility.
