There are many benefits offered to the veterans in the West Michigan community, but it can be overwhelming and some can be missed. Kent County Veteran Services steps in to make sure veterans in the area are getting the county, state, and federal benefits offered.

Kent County Veterans Services has a new events calendar showing many new initiatives for 2021 both virtual and in-person such as art, yoga, music, crafts, hikes, equine-assisted therapy, and more. KCVS is working remotely, so they're able to start and complete claims wherever you are.

Nelson Soto, the organization's new veteran support coordinator, will help supply resources via KCVS and other veteran organizations in the area. He can be contacted at (616)-286-9052.

Other organizations assisting veterans in West Michigan are the Jaeger Foundation and the Comanche Project by Equine Assisted Development.

The Jaeger Foundation strives to equip veterans and First Responders in need and empower them to endure day to day life through the help of service K9's.

Equine Assisted Development put together the Comanche Project to meet the needs of hands-on learning for Veterans by connecting farm culture, nature, community, and horses. These services provide opportunities to work and play toward self-discovery and personal growth.
