New program for veterans assistance part of budget proposal

TRENTON – As part of his budget proposal, Gov. Christie said he wants to start a program to provide assistance to veterans.

“Our successful veterans haven program provides a great place for homeless veterans.  After being evaluated at a VA hospital, veterans can join a long-term program focused on social and vocational rehabilitation. The program works.

“The startup funding I propose will be used to launch a new effort to use the former Hagedorn Psychiatric Hospital to give access to veterans in the northern part of the state to this highly effective program. Hagedorn Psychiatric Hospital will now be the location for Veterans Haven North.”
