The Oregon Department of Veterans’ Affairs (ODVA) is uniting a volunteer force to connect aging veterans to their earned benefits.
Why? There are over 330,000 Oregonians who have served in the military. Two thirds of these veterans are not receiving health care from the VA and fifty three percent of them are over the age of 65. Many of these men and women could benefit from state, local, and federal services.
ODVA is currently launching the Volunteer Veteran Guide Program in Clackamas and Polk Counties with expansion to other counties to come. If ensuring veterans and their families receive the county, state and federal veterans’ benefits they have earned sounds exciting to you, we’d like to have you join our team on this mission!
We’ll train, mentor, and help you along the way. Together we can make a difference in the lives of our veterans.
