“Adapt and Overcome”

Thank you to the many veterans’ services organizations that have remained open and operational during the COVID-19 pandemic. The services these groups provide are no less critical now than they have been at any other time, and everyone who has continued to answer the call during a time of such uncertainty deserves a moment of acknowledgment and appreciation.

This includes our team at the Summit County Veterans Service Commission, which continues to provide as many services as possible to local veterans. Using such mediums as the VSC website, Facebook, Skype, phones and portable computer stations set up in the VSC building, the VSC is continuing to operate Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and is open to the public. The following services are available: counseling for questions about filing claims to the Department of Veterans Affairs; financial assistance; and critical medical transportation to medical facilities. From March 9 through April 23, the VSC has assisted Veterans and their dependents with the following:

  • Assisted 189 in applying for benefits with the Department of Veterans Affairs 
  • Provided $95,146 in financial assistance for payments for utilities, rent, mortgages and food.
  • Provided critical medical transportation to the following medical facilities: 1 to University Hospital, Cleveland; 5 to Parma VA Clinic; and 110 to the VA Cleveland Medical Center.
