Thank you Ravalli County!

  • Our Veteran Service Officers (VSO) are trained, accredited and supported by the National Association of County Veterans Services Officers (NACVSO). NACVSO is the largest VSO accrediting organization in the nation.
  • All services at the Valley Veterans Service Center (VVSC) are free to ALL Veteran and family members. Some of these valuable services include providing housing assistance, counseling, and help gaining access to federal benefits.
  • There are currently roughly 4500 Veterans in Ravalli County using VA services and approximately 5000 more that are not. They are being service by 1.75 full time employees at the Valley Veterans Service Center.
  • The VVSC is funded by one Mill Levy from Ravalli County and passed in 2010 largely due to the hard work of the Vietnam Veterans of America.
  • Back in 2010, 67% of Ravalli County voters approved a 1 mill levy for the VVSC. That levy amounted to a tax of $2.70 on a home with a taxable value of $100,000. If the additional 2 mill levy is approved, it will increase that tax by $5.40 per home with a taxable value of $100,000, for a total of $8.10 going to the Valley Veterans Service Center to employ 3 full time VSO’s and 1 administrative assistant.
