STAMFORD, Conn. – Mayor David Martin has appointed Frank Fedeli, the Citizen’s Service supervisor, to serve as the veterans’ service contact for the city of Stamford.
Fedeli’s duties will include helping veterans in the area to gain access and information about services, along with heading up the Veterans’ Resource Center, after it opens in the fall.
“We have a dedicated community of veterans here in Stamford, who served with distinction in order to protect us and the freedoms we have come to enjoy,” Martin said. “All too often, they find themselves unable to secure the support they need and deserve. The Veterans’ Resource Center will help address this problem by providing veterans with a local contact who can help them obtain access to public and private resources.”
The Veterans’ Resource Center will work with local veterans’ organizations to assist veterans in finding education, employment, and in rehabilitating and readjusting to civilian life.
The center will also cooperate with private, local, state and national agencies to provide benefits and services to veterans and their dependents. They will also encourage and coordinate vocational training for veterans.
Prior to the opening of the office, local veterans with questions may contact Fedeli by calling 203-977-5858 or emailing email@example.com.
