Senator Burr Releases Statement on Veterans' Life Center

WASHINGTON, D.C. -Today, U.S. Senator Richard Burr (R-NC), Ranking Member of the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs, released the following statement on the recent federal grant to establish the Veterans' Life Center in Butner, North Carolina.

"I am incredibly pleased to know that the Veterans' Life Center is going to become a reality. The announcement of the grant to fund the first stage of this worthwhile veterans' project marks a major milestone toward building a safe harbor where North Carolina's homeless and at risk veterans can get the comprehensive support, counseling, and life skills they need to become self-reliant. This grant would not have been awarded without the inspiring and relentless efforts of the Veterans Leadership Council of North Carolina and their many advocates and supporters. Their success is a testament to how a small and dedicated group of veterans can help address some of the toughest challenges their fellow veterans are facing and bring government and citizens together to accomplish that important mission."
