The scars of war are deep, life-altering and slow to heal. Veterans Outreach Center proactively seeks out veterans in need who continue to suffer in silence-battling personal wars that can be won, with our help. VOC's collaborative approach to treatment cares for the whole person. Veterans receive the breadth of services needed to regain their mental, physical and economic health; reconnect with themselves and society; and resume productive lives.
Veterans Outreach Center helps veterans of all eras, including World War II, Korea, Vietnam, the Persian Gulf, Operation Iraqi Freedom, Operation Enduring Freedom, those who served during peacetime, and Guard and Reserve military personnel. They stand ready to assist current troops returning to the home front. They believe the healing process for all veterans involves the efforts of family, friends and community to actively participate in the reintegration process.
Veterans Outreach Center is the oldest community-based veteran outreach effort in the nation. Opened in 1973 to support Vietnam veterans coping with their wartime experiences and to facilitate government benefits claims, VOC has evolved to the meet the contemporary and ever-changing need of all veterans.
