ROCKY HILL, CT – State Senator Matt Lesser (D-Middletown) participated in a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the grand openings of a newly renovated and refurnished Rocky Hill residential facility and a new outpatient clinic on the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA) campus.

“I want to commend Commissioner Saadi and the Department of Veterans Affairs. Veterans deserve top-notch support, and I’m happy these improvements are coming to help veterans in Rocky Hill,” said Sen. Lesser, who also represents Rocky Hill in the Ninth state Senate District. “I’m particularly grateful to private donors, who made these upgrades possible at no additional cost to taxpayers.”

The renovated C-Wing consists of the first double occupancy semi-private rooms at the Rocky Hill residential facility. All other rooms at the facility are four person communal rooms. The C-Wing project is a milestone for the DVA, as it will also provide new programing in which veterans will work in teams to assist with the maintenance and upkeep of their living areas.

The DVA’s residential facility is an important resource for veterans, as it provides rehabilitation services and programs all while maintaining a community living environment. Programs available include vocational rehabilitation, educational services and employment search assistance. Additional programs provided at the residential facility include, but are not limited to, recovery support, nutritional services and spiritual and religious services.
