Please contact the Vet Center, as our eligibility may expand. If we are unable to help you, we will find someone who can.

Vet Center services are provided to family members of Veterans and service members for military related issues when it is found aid in the readjustment of those that have served or help cope with the deployment of a loved one. Our services are also available to family members when their participation would support the growth and goals of the Veteran or service member. If you consider them family, so do we.

We also offer bereavement services to family members of Veterans that were receiving Vet Center services at the time of the Veteran’s death, and to the families of service members who died while serving on active duty
