The Yates County Veterans Service Agency is looking for volunteer drivers.
County provides free ride service to veterans
Yates County Administrator Nonie Flynn says the county offers a free program in which volunteer drivers use county vehicles to take veterans to their medical appointments.
To assist Veterans and their families in identifying and applying for the benefits they are entitled to as a result of their military service.
Yates County Veterans Service Agency accomplishes its mission as it works to:
- Guide the veteran through the entire procedure from the claim application to the adjudication and, if necessary, the appeal process.
- Provide advocacy services for veterans, their spouses, and dependents making it easier for claims and earned benefits to be administered.
The vision of the Veterans Service Agency (VSA), in partnership with the Veterans Affairs both federal and state, as well as other county agencies and departments, is to provide all veterans and their dependents with the benefits they have earned; strengthen the county’s economic base; engender the veterans and veterans organization trust; expand community outreach, and enhance the quality of life of the Yates County veteran community.
