Who We Are

The San Luis Obispo County Department of Veterans Services was formed in 1938. The department was created to help local veterans and their families obtain veterans’ benefits from federal, state, and local agencies. Since the department’s inception, the Board of Supervisors has continued to recognize the need for professional veterans’ advocates to provide claims assistance to the 25,000 veterans and their families who reside in this county.

Our Mission

To be advocates for the men and women who have served in the Armed Forces of America, their dependents and their survivors.
