“The center named in honor of Captain Carlton R. Rouh”
Located within SpectraCare’s Lindenwold campus, sharing space with the SpectraCare Foundation’s home office, is the site of the Veteran’s Assistance Center of Southern NJ. It sits on a grassy campus, abutting a peaceful fresh water creek with lots of trees and serenity. Outdoor space renovations, including social and picnic areas are planned. Interior renovations include meeting areas, office space, a small conference center, computer workstations, a lounge area with comfortable seating and a large screen TV and a large internal wall display bookcase for vet service awards. A food preparation area has also been integrated. The office areas have been designed to provide staff and veteran privacy for foundation sponsored program and VA benefits enrollment and for one-on-one counseling. A large group area has been segregated with seating for up to 30 vets for varied educational and training opportunities in concert with Rutgers University, Camden County College and other area nonprofit training providers. Offerings will range from off-campus classes, vocational instruction and apprenticeship training to financial planning and life-skills management seminars. Overall, the center is envisioned as a place for local vets to congregate, socialize, learn, share, teach, inspire, mentor.
