"Approximately one out of every six residents of Clear Creek County is a veteran of the United States military. The mission of the Clear Creek County Veterans Coalition is to ensure that all county Veterans and their families are aware of, and can obtain, the benefits and resources to which they are entitled.
The Veterans Coalition sponsors the annual "Veterans Helping Veterans" Health Fair, Memorial Day Ceremonies, POW/MIA Remembrance Day, Veterans Day Ceremonies, and Pear Harbor Remembrance Day Ceremonies. Through the media, using articles like the "Veterans' Corner" and KYGT interviews, we inform the public at large concerning the needs of Veterans and the resources to meet them..
Our on-going efforts for those who have served to protect and defend the United States include strategic partnerships to provide transportation, safer housing, security from financial predators, and trusted, and collaborative advice to positively affect our veterans and their families".
Any Veteran living in Clear Creek County is welcome to join or visit the Clear Creek County Veterans Coalition regardless of period of service. Meeting normally occur the first Thursday of every month at 4:00 PM at the Idaho Springs Elks Lodge.
