Are you a Douglas County Veteran in need of assistance with housing, food, transportation, employment, mental health care or other urgent concerns?
Beginning Friday, July 1, you may apply to receive Veterans Emergency Assistance Funds for 2022.
The funding – the result of a grant from the Colorado Department of Military and Veterans Affairs – is part of a robust arsenal of resources available through the Douglas County Veterans Service Office, serving Veterans and their families in Douglas County.
The Veterans Service Office provides access to special programs and services, while also assisting veterans with applying for benefits, employment assistance, medical care, and housing and coordination of other services, such as transportation. The Office also assists surviving spouses, dependents’ parents, and dependents with claims for pension, disability, burial reimbursements and more.
Staffed entirely by military veterans, trained by, and working in cooperation with the Colorado Department of Military and Veterans Affairs, all volunteers working in the office are accredited by the National Associated of County Veterans Service Officers.
