Veterans Service Organizations
There are several Veterans Service Organizations (VSOs) that help veterans and their families with finding, applying for, receiving, and maintaining veteran’s benefits. These services are provided free of charge.
Genesee County has their own Department of Veteran Services. This department provides the same services as the national organizations listed below, but closer to home. In addition to helping with any federal benefits provided through the VA, they can also assist with any veteran’s benefits provided by state and local government agencies.
The office can be contacted at:
Genesee County Department of Veteran Services

The following VSOs have offices located close to home, as well as on the 12th floor of the Patrick V. McNamara Federal Building (477 Michigan Avenue) in downtown Detroit, which is where the VA Detroit Regional Office is located.
