“This was totally awesome. I so enjoyed meeting other veterans and their families. Thank you for providing such exciting and meaningful events for veterans. We so often get overlooked.” –Previous Madonna Inn Trail Ride Participant
The program is excited to welcome many new participants for Sunday’s trail ride thanks to its membership in the SLO Veterans Service Collaborative. The collaborative is composed with over 50 local organizations serving county veterans. The Collaborative’s mission is to identify strengths and areas for improvement in delivering services to the local veteran community. Veterans Outreach participants now learn about employment, housing, medical and education assistance as well.
Veterans Outreach events are free of cost to those who served in the military and their guests.
