Helping Our Veterans


Supervisor Jim Desmond teamed up with Supervisor Gaspar on a board letter, which will strengthen an outreach program for veterans being held at the Vista Detention Facility. Last month, I was able to tour the Vista Jail and observed the veterans program. Veterans are co located and provided support programs, such as community college courses to break the cycle and become productive members of civilian life.
San Diego is home to the largest veterans population in the Country and adjusting to civilian life can be challenging. This is an important program to help these veterans get out of the system and back on their feet. One mistake shouldn’t limit their ability to contribute to society.
