Ventura and Los Angeles-area County Veterans Service Offices Stand Ready to Assist Veterans in Fire-Impacted Areas

CACVSOhighresWhile multiple fires devastate communities throughout Southern California, there are a number of County Veterans Service Offices (CVSOs) still open, ready to assist veterans.

CVSOs typically help veterans to obtain local, state and federal benefits, and assist with filing claims. They can also provide information about CalVet home loans and insurance.

If you have a CalVet Home Loan and were evacuated or experienced property loss, please contact York Field Services 24-hour hotline at (800) 626-1613 to begin the claim process. The CalVet homeowner insurance also provides for temporary living expenses for evacuations; please call today.


Anyone seeking information on a family member who is a resident at the Veterans Home of California-Ventura should call our resident information line at (805) 659-7515.

Veterans who are affected by wildfires should contact their County Veteran Services Office for assistance with filing claims, replacing service-related and benefit documents, and receiving job placement assistance. Below is the status of CVSO offices in areas impacted by wildfires. A complete list of CVSOs with contact information is available here.
