BAKERSFIELD, CA. — The VA Bakersfield Community-Based Outreach Clinic is holding an open house for veterans from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, April 3rd at 1801 Westwind Drive, Bakersfield, CA 93301.

Veterans and family members can receive information about VA specialty programs, local job opportunities and healthcare enrollment.

"It's an opportunity for veterans to find out more about local resources and meet other veterans in the community," said Charles Green, chief of outreach.

There will be free lunch for any veteran and family member that attends the open house.

“We’re trying to be innovative in bringing special opportunities to our Veterans such as a job resource fair. Veterans can meet directly with the staff who help recruit and outreach for vacant positions,” said Green.

Veterans can enjoy free giveaways, lunch and as an added bonus, Veterans in the healthcare system that bring a fellow Veteran who gets enrolled, receives a special gift bag.
