Montana is home to over 100,000 Veterans and thousands are reintegrating this year. These free, one-day events feature special presentations, interactive activities and breakout sessions from organizations already supporting Montana’s military community.
The day features topical breakout sessions on behavioral health, faith, legal and financial topics relating to military and veterans. “Where do we go from here?” is answered in a group activity, designed to help communities serve the needs of this significant population.
Organizations wanting to serve this population are encouraged to attend, or contact Sheila Warner with questions.
