Military charity Stack Up has opened up the Phalanx House in Los Angeles, California, a community center where veterans can host esports events. The house was designed to help US and Allied Veterans’ mental health through gaming, giving them a destination that provides the therapeutic value of gaming and the community around it.
“Stack Up is going to provide an excellent opportunity for the growing network of veteran peer support in LA County with a great option to connect their veterans to an opportunity to connect with each other through gaming,” said James Zenner, Army veteran and Mental Health Program Manager for Los Angeles County’s Veteran Peer Access Network.
The Phalanx House will offer everything from LAN parties, VR games, and event spaces to hold tabletop gaming sessions. Events will be hosted in conjunction with Los Angeles County Veteran Health services.
Located in Van Nuys, the Phalanx House features a 10-station LAN center, a home theater with massage chairs, stations for multiplayer VR sessions, a board gaming, and Dungeons and Dragons annex, a pool with jacuzzi, a military “smoke pit,” and much more.
