New center provides services for military veterans and families

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Military families now have a one-stop shop with the grand opening of the Mt. Carmel Center of Excellence.

The center provides wellness programs and transitional services, with a special emphasis on veterans, military, and their families.

The Veterans Service Office, DHS, and Workforce Center are all housed in the center. Mt. Carmel is already serving more than 500 families, and expects that number to grow.

“A person can walk in here in need of hiring, employment, behavioral health, or other, and get direction or help from this one place,” Mickey Hunt of Colorado Military Veterans Affairs said.

Mt. Carmel opened Friday and is located on the south side of town, near West Moreno Avenue and Communication Circle.
