The department is a resource center that offers veterans, their families and the community three service components:
Veterans’ entitlement services for eligible veterans and their families.
Employment and social service case management services for qualifying veterans and their families.
Public relations and marketing services designed to bring veterans, their issues, and the community closer together through awareness, outreach, veteran-related special events and development and maintenance of community partnerships.
Veterans Service Officers
County Veteran Service Officers (VSOs) are certified, skilled professionals trained in developing veterans’ claims for benefits by reviewing and applying relevant legislation, current law, protocols and pertinent medical evidence. VSOs function as attorneys-in-fact for Veterans and families they represent. VSOs are accredited through several veteran service organizations.
The work of service officers involves important matters like helping a Veteran get outpatient treatment or gain admission for inpatient care at a VA medical center. They assist Veterans and their families in filing for VA disability compensation, rehabilitation and education programs, pension and death benefits, employment and training programs, and many other programs.
