State VA group has new guide to veterans’ services

Staff Reporter | Salisbury Post

RALEIGH – The North Carolina Division of Veterans Affairs has released a  package of veteran services and resources specifically tailored to the state’s 800,000 veterans and their dependents.

For the past 15 months, the division has restructured its outreach capabilities while building new technology services, providing veterans, their family members and transitioning military personnel with the most up-to-date resources and information.

In the fall of 2014, the division set up a call center that has connected more than 10,000 veterans across the state to local, state, federal and non-profit services.

In conjunction with the opening of the NC4VETS Call Center, the division released more than 50,000 copies of its 2014 NC4VETS Resource Guide, a guide that focuses on VA benefits, employment, education, health care, housing and personal services available to veterans across the state.

The division has launched the latest version of the NC4VETS Website, www.NC4VETS.com, featuring a tool that will allow veterans to enter their zip code and receive a virtual map of services and resources located within a desired radius.

Veterans will be able to find their nearest Veteran Service Officer (VSO), a trained and accredited veteran advocate, by using the “Find Vet Services” tool. NC4VETS.com is also a fully mobile application that allows a veteran to find service locations  from their mobile phone.

NCDVA has also released its new 2015 NC4VETS Resource Guide. The guide  contains over 2,500 data points and 350 points of contacts to employment and career services; over 100 local and statewide veteran focused non-profits and detailed information on how to work with a Veterans Service Officer. All of that can be seen by visiting www.nc4vets.com or by calling the Resource Center at 844.nc4.vet
