Seeing the quality of life needs of military veterans living in Northeast Louisiana, Northeast Delta Human Services Authority (NEDHSA) and the Louisiana Delta Community College (LDCC) have partnered to provide an array of behavioral health and educational services.
“Providing greater access to services is one of our three tenets that guide our actions,” said Dr. Monteic A. Sizer, executive director of NEDHSA. “This LDCC collaboration shows the importance we place on serving veterans, and it demonstrates our efforts to improve the lives of all across our region.”
The NEDHSA will accept appropriate referrals from the LDCC TRIO Veterans Upward Bound (VUB). In turn, NEDHSA will refer its existing veteran clients to the VUB for college preparatory services, academic and basic skills development, tutorial services and financial and economic literary services.
“The TRIO VUB program at LDCC believes in offering our veterans a full scale of opportunities to enhance their livelihood,” said Gloria J. George, LDCC director of TRIO VUB. “Our partnership with NEDHSA demonstrates our continued commitment to serving those who have served us.”
Sizer’s vision goes hand-in-hand with LDCC’s beliefs.
“The needs and people of our region are diverse. This collaborative agreement ensures that more people can get the lifesaving services they need to reach their full human potential. Those who have honorably served our nation deserve nothing less,” Sizer said.
