The Virginia Department of Veterans Services (VDVS) Virginia Veteran and Family Support (VVFS) program is continuing services to Service Members, Veterans, and their Families (SMVF) as the Commonwealth begins reopening after the COVID-19 shutdowns. We are serving our SMVF population as before but with certain protocols in place to ensure the safety of our staff, clients and community partners. Our Regional offices will be opening at different times across the state but we are continuing to support the needs of eligible individuals by phone/email until all offices have re-opened.
Our staff will be serving the needs of our veterans and their family members by appointment only. As we re-open offices, we are ensuring all social distancing protocols are in place for the safety of our staff and service members and veteran families. If as a veteran, you or your family has a need which requires a face-to-face meeting In an urgent or emergency situation, please advise when you speak with the Regional Director or Resource Specialist at the time of initial contact. To determine whether your local office is open, please contact 1-877-285-1299 and your call will be routed to the appropriate region for assistance. Please be sure to state your name, a return phone number, and your location clearly.
