Veterans Hub of NEPA opens in Carbon County

A new veterans resource center opened earlier this month in the Poconos.

The Veteran's Hub of Northeast Pennsylvania opened on Nov. 10 at St. Luke's Lehighton Campus with a goal to address the mental health needs of former service members.

Christine LeClair, Carbon County’s Veterans Affairs Director, said the center is a partnership with the Scranton Vet Center. A certified counselor from the Scranton Vet Center travels to Lehighton each Wednesday to speak with local veterans.

To make an appointment at the Veterans Hub of NEPA, you can call the Scranton Vet Center at 570-344-2676.

You can also reach the Veterans Crisis Line — dial 988, then press 1.
