Federally Qualified Health Centers, along with a few other entities, are now qualified providers for veteran health care services.
Area veterans can now use CHANGE, Inc.'s Family Medical Care Community Health Center, at 3136 West St., Weirton or 200 Luray Drive, Wintersville to receive health care services in a timely manner and closer to home. Family Medical Care provides family health, women's health, dental care and mental health services to patients throughout the Ohio Valley.
The agency administers the Supportive Services for Veteran Families Program, which is designed to improve the housing stability of very low-income veteran families, by assisting families transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing and/or preventing at-risk families from becoming homeless. Assistance for veterans include health care, daily living, child care, transportation, temporary financial, fiduciary and payee services, legal services and personal financial planning services.
