VDVS offices will close at 12pm on November 24 and will be closed all day on November 25 and 26 in observance of Thanksgiving.
At the Virginia Department of Veterans Services (VDVS), the safety of our Virginia’s service members, veterans, their families and our staff members remains our highest priority.
Due to the continuing COVID-19 pandemic, our staff will continue to meet clients in person by APPOINTMENT ONLY at our offices Monday-Thursday. Virtual appointments will be available on Fridays and every day of the business week. Specific guidelines regarding in person appointments will be provided when the appointment is scheduled.
VDVS offices will not be taking walk-ins as there will be no lobby space or waiting rooms available on site. Clients and VDVS staff who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 must wear a facemask for in person appointments.
Thank you. Please know at VDVS we continue to do our best to serve those who served us.
The Commonwealth offers a variety of programs to assist veterans in finding employment upon their transition to civilian life and beyond.
The Virginia Values Veterans (V3) Program is a Commonwealth of Virginia Department of Veterans Services Program whose mission is to educate and train employers throughout the Commonwealth on the Value of Virginia’s Veterans, and to help employers connect with these personnel assets to maximize the productivity of their workforce.
The V3 Transition Program offers transitioning service members and their spouses the best Virginia has to offer. By providing peer-to-peer support through the transition process, VTAP works alongside the transitioning service member or spouse to make referrals that address specific needs. The referral services could include, but is not limited to resume review, introduction to the Virginia Labor Market index, connection with the Virginia Values Veterans (V3) certified companies for employment, and other DVS programs as applicable. The V3 Transition Program provides assistance to those seeking employment, education, and entrepreneurship, but we will also assist those with needs outside of those three core areas.
