    US Department of Veterans Affairs – Center for Women Veterans
    In November 1994, Public Law 103-446 established the Center for Women to monitor and coordinate VA's administration of health care and benefits services and programs for women Veterans. The Center serves as an advocate for a cultural transformation (both within VA and in the general public) in recognizing the service and contributions of women Veterans and women in the military, and in raising awareness of the responsibility to treat women Veterans with dignity and respect. The Director, Center for Women Veterans, acts as the primary advisor to the Secretary of Veterans Affairs on all matters related to policies, legislation, programs, issues, and initiatives affecting women Veterans.

    Veterans Outreach Center

    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.
