VA 'Welcome Center' opens in Menlo Park

The Department of Veterans Affairs held a ribbon-cutting ceremony April 25 for a new 10,000-square-foot "Welcome Center" on the VA campus at 795 Willow Road in Menlo Park.

The center is a "comprehensive therapeutic facility" and gateway to the Menlo Park campus, the VA says.

It was built solely through donations from real estate developer and philanthropist John Arrillaga, according to VA spokesperson Michael Hill-Jackson.

The center will provide a "point of navigation" on the campus and a "continuum of services" for veterans, from specialized rehabilitative classrooms to a service dog training area.
