State of Delaware Launches Veterans Services Directory
Dover, DE – Governor Jack Markell was joined by Delaware Secretary of State Jeffrey Bullock, State Representative Earl G. Jaques Jr. and representatives from the Delaware Commission of Veteran Affairs to announce the launch of the Veterans Services Directory (VSD). The VSD is an online, searchable database of public and private organizations that provide services to Delaware military veterans and their families.
The VSD can be accessed via www.delaware.gov/vsd, and features links to Employment Services, Housing Services, Medical Services, and Education Services, among others. The VSD currently has over thirty (30) organizations profiled, with information ranging from general knowledge and social media links to videos provided by some providers. To increase the user experience, VSD is searchable by geographic location and type of service offered, and also offers quick links to important state and federal veterans’ agencies. VSD will provide an array of essential services for Delaware’s vast military community and simplify the process of obtaining needed services for military veterans and their families.
Delaware Governor Jack Markell said, “Veterans have served and we are obligated to do everything in our power to ensure they get the services they have earned. The VSD is an innovative way to connect those in need of housing, healthcare, jobs and many other benefits with those organizations that have a passion to serve veterans. I want to personally encourage organizations to register for free today and help us get the word out about the Veterans Services Directory.”
Delaware Secretary of State Jeffrey Bullock said, “The Veterans Services Directory is part of the solution to a problem that has existed for years. There are many benefits available to military members, veterans and their families. There are many organizations whose mission it is to provide a wide range of services to veterans. The issue has been connecting the veterans to the services. Our hope is that the Veterans Services Directory is a big part of the solution.”
