The Sonoma County Veterans Service Office is a unit of the County of Sonoma, Human Services Department, Adult and Aging Services Division. The county Veterans Service Office program was established in Sonoma County in 1944 to provide assistance to veterans and their families. We are not part of the Department of Veterans Affairs (“The VA”). We are a county agency dedicated to serving veterans and their families. We are knowledgeable about the huge array of programs, benefits and services that are available today.
Special Announcement: Free parking access at regional parks for Veteran’s Day weekend.
A Note from the Veterans Service Officer:
Unfortunately, many Veterans and their dependents are unaware of services and benefits available to them based on their service to our nation. Often a client will visit our office for assistance with one issue and discover during an in-depth interview that there are other issues to be addressed and other potential benefits they are eligible for. Our goal is to ensure that every client has access to all benefits they have earned through their service to our nation. Lauralyn Castle, Peri Parrott, Chris Raschke, Leah Conde and I are here to provide Veteran benefit information, claims assistance and referral to other pertinent community services to veterans and their families. Our office is open through Thursday from 8:00AM to 5:00PM. From 8:30 to 10:00, we see clients on a drop in basis (please arrive early to ensure that we can see you before we start seeing appointments). From 10:00- 5:00 we see clients by appointment only. Please call (707) 565-5960 to schedule an appointment.
