The Department of Veterans Affairs expanded their fleet of Mobile Vet Centers during 2012, by deploying an additional 20 or more new vehicles across the continental United States, Hawaii, and Puerto Rico.
Designed to increase access to counseling services for Veterans, service-members, and their families, the customized American made vehicles contain confidential counseling rooms where staff can meet individually or jointly with Veterans and their family members.
The Mobile Vet Centers serve as ‘mobile offices’ and are equipped with state-of-the-art satellite communications systems, that enable staff to securely access patients’ computerized medical records, provide a broad range of medical and benefits referral services, employment counseling, and many other services.
The overarching goal of the Mobile Vet Center is to reach out into the community, assisting Veterans in their readjustment to civilian life – no matter which combat zone or era the Veteran served in.
