Our committee was formed to help and support the needs of Veterans in our local area. All our committee members are volunteers.
To provide, our fellow veterans the highest level of assistance possible. To provide answers to their questions or, at the very least, a referral to someone that has the answer.
We advise our local leaders with needs of the Vets in our local area, which include the areas of Eastern Kern, Inyo and parts of San Bernardino.
We were given a list of choice providers for veterans. You can download the list by clicking the button below.List
