To promote the interests and welfare of veterans, their dependents and survivors and to enhance their quality of life through counseling claims assistance, education, advocacy and special projects.

The Veterans Service Office assists all Veterans, who have served under honorable conditions in the Armed Forces of the United States, in securing federal and state benefits which they are provided by law.  It further assists them in accessing these benefits through the Veterans Transport Van Program.

Assistance is also provided to all residents, regardless of the character of their service, in securing mental health counseling and treatment for alcohol and/or drug dependency.

We do NOT work for the Veterans Administration or the State of Minnesota and have no direct influence on the granting of benefits so we are truly the Veterans Advocate.
