About the Commission

The Ohio Revised Code Soldier's Relief Act of 1886 specifies that each county shall have a commission to insure that the needs of veterans, widows of veterans and dependents of veterans who meet financial hardship through no fault of their own shall be provided for at least during a temporary transitional period. Such needs are primarily shelter, food, clothing and essentials to life.

In addition to the basic needs described the commission shall also assist the veteran with transportation to and from authorized Veterans Affairs medical institutions and with the preparing, filing and follow-up of administrative claims with Veterans Affairs.

We offer financial assistance for eligible Washington County Veterans.
