VETERANS SERVICES HAVE MOVED!

Our new office is located at:

226 E Michigan Avenue

Paw Paw, MI  49079



Grand Opening

We are honored to have officially hosted the Grand Opening of the “New” Veterans Services Office for Van Buren County Veterans Services.  This has been an ongoing effort with unanimous approval from the Van Buren County Board of Commissioners, Administration, and assistance from the entire community. The building is located at 226 E. Michigan Ave, Paw Paw, Michigan.  It is the Old Time Capsule Museum located in the heart of downtown Paw Paw.  The building offers single level entry for disabled veterans/families.  It has a common area where veterans can sit down and network.  We also have a computer center for veterans to use helpful sites like “VA.gov, Ebenefits, and My Healthy.Vet.” along with additional Veteran Affairs sites.   The computer room also gives the veteran the ability to conduct TeleHealth appointments, and Zoom in for VA Appeals Court.  This saves the Veteran time and expenses when conducting these appointments.
