The Virginia Veteran and Family Support (VVFS) program provides a statewide delivery and response system for behavioral health, rehabilitative, and supportive services for military members, veterans, and their families.

For the health and safety of our clientele and staff, DVS offices will be closed to the public until further notice. We are, however, open for business and available to assist veterans and their families remotely, communicating via email and telephone.

As always, VVFS services will continue to address a wide array of health and wellness issues for Virginia veterans of any era, members of the Armed Forces, National Guard and Reserves who are not in active federal service. We are also continuing to provide services to veteran families as appropriate to their need.

VVFS provides peer and family support and comprehensive care coordination services including:

  • Direct linkages to medical and behavioral healthcare, veteran’s benefits, housing, employment, and other public and private assistance programs;

  • Due to our response to COVID 19 and the Governor’s Executive Order to “stay at home”, our regional teams are working to continue our Peer Support Groups via Zoom across the state. If you currently participate in a group, and would like more information about the status of the group, please reach out to the group leader.

  • Specialized outreach and assistance to vulnerable veterans, including at risk or homeless veterans and veterans involved in the criminal justice system.

  • NOTE: At the present time, all couples and family workshops/retreats have been postponed until we are able to safely provide to our participants.

To reach your VVFS regional office for further information or assistance, please call our toll free number 1-877-285-1299
