New funds available to serve at-risk Veterans
Douglas County recently received a state grant providing emergency assistance to veterans struggling with housing (mortgage and rent payments), transportation, employment, healthcare or other emergency needs. To apply for the veterans assistance funds visit Veterans Emergency Assistance Funds or contact the Office of Veteran Affairs at 303-663-6200.
The Office of Veterans Affairs provides access to special programs and services for veterans and their families. As advocates for veterans, staff provides timely information on services, events and activities affecting veterans. This includes coordination with the Colorado Division of Veterans Affairs and the United Veterans Committee (UVC) of Colorado. The Veterans Affairs staff also assists all veterans in applying for benefits, employment assistance, medical care, transportation and coordination to other services.
Staff consists of volunteers who are military veterans. They are trained by and work in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Military and Veterans Affairs and have successfully been accredited by the National Associated of County Veterans Service Officers.
Assist county residents who served in the Armed Forces and their dependents to obtain any and all benefits for which they may be eligible.
