EL PASO, Texas -- The City of El Paso and the County of El Paso, in collaboration with the El Paso Chamber and the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Endeavors and Combined Arms, have joined forces to conduct a Veteran Needs Assessment/Survey throughout El Paso County.

The feedback will help shape policy and assist in developing and improving programs geared toward addressing the vital needs of our veterans, which include physical and mental well-being, employment, homelessness, social support, and economic empowerment.

"We're a great city and we really do things for veterans. The only thing is we've never asked them what they want for us, so this survey will give us the opportunity to find out 'What are some of their needs? What are some of their obstacles? What are some of the barriers they might have and what do they want to see that's different?" said El Paso County Judge Judge Ricardo Samaniego.

The survey is available both in-person and online. The online survey available at El Paso Veterans Needs Assessment.
