Part of the Santa Cruz County Human Service Department, the Veterans Services Office offers programs and services that support county residents who have served in the U.S. military. The office, founded in 1946, helps all veterans regardless of length of service or type of discharge—but especially those who are having difficulty adjusting to civilian life.

Services include assistance in applying for benefits and compensation as a result of a military-related illness or injury. Staff members also help veterans to receive burial benefits, college waivers, military record requests, home loans, transportation to VA locations, and various healthcare needs.

Every Wednesday in downtown Santa Cruz is Veterans Service Day, where this organization has VA doctors and specialists on site, housing resource groups available, and claims filing assistance. They also serve a hot meal at noon.

The office also has a location at 18 W Beach St, Watsonville, CA 95076; (831) 763-8868.
