Oct 28, 2013
Press Release

Washington, DC – Rep. Doug LaMalfa (R-CA) on Friday welcomed North State veterans to the opening of the Redding Veterans Home, which is now accepting residents and will eventually be home to at least 150 veterans. Built with federal funds, the community and its lawmakers worked for years to secure operational funds from the state. Rep. LaMalfa advocated for the home’s opening during his time as a member of the state Senate’s Budget Committee and as a member of the state Assembly.  

“This home is the product of years of work by the community to ensure that the our veterans receive the services they have earned,” said Rep. LaMalfa.  “Not only is it a symbol of the North State’s respect for the sacrifices that our veterans have made, it is a recognition of the fact that our region is home to a disproportionate number of men and women who have served our nation. Fulfilling our promises to them is the least that we can do.”
