Each County Veterans Service Office assists veterans or their families who experience financial emergencies. This short-term assistance varies with the individual abilities of each county, but may include rent or mortgage payments, grocery money, or payment of utility bills. They also offer shuttle services to provide rides for vets to the VA. The offices were mandated by Abraham Lincoln at the close of the Civil War, and proudly reach out to vets yet today!

   For details concerning the level of financial assistance and transportation available in a specific county, check with the local County Veterans Service Office as listed below. Thanks to Sen. Joe Uecker's office for the list.   (Senator Uecker serves on the Veterans' Affairs Committee for the State of Ohio.)
