Mission Statement

Effective immediately, the Rhode Island Office of Veterans Services maintains the following:

• Thorough knowledge of individual and social factors contributing to personal problems that affect the Veteran, active duty, guard and reserve, and/or their families;

• Remains current on issues and trends impacting the work and mission of the agency;

• Forms strong and successful partnerships locally, regionally, and nationwide to address Veterans’ issues in Rhode Island.

These focuses are imperative to reduce homelessness amongst Veterans, Veterans living in poverty, Veteran unemployment rates, ensure Veterans receive proper medical care, continue quality customer service at the Rhode Island Veterans Home and Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery and ensure every Veteran has an opportunity to make it in Rhode Island.
