Trained veterans and volunteer resource specialists can help you navigate services for accessing veterans benefits by:

  • Providing a supportive place to take your next steps to transitioning back to civilian life
  • Steering you toward veteran resources and programs from the county, state and federal level 
  • Helping you and your family understand the state and federal benefits you have earned

Starting September, we'll host a monthly virtual meeting with the Sacramento County Veterans Officer as part of our services for the veteran population.
