Volunteers of America Northern Rockies Opens New Veterans Services Office in Miles City |

Volunteers of America Northern Rockies (VOA) will host an open house and ribbon cutting to celebrate the opening of their new Veterans Services office in Montana on March 15.

The open house will be held at their new Miles City office, located at 517 N. Strevell Avenue, Unit A, from 1-2 p.m., with the grand opening at 1:30 p.m. VOA invites the public to tour the office, enjoy light refreshments and listen to presentations about VOA’s Veterans Services.

This office is VOA’s eighth in Montana, joining locations in Billings, Bozeman, Butte, Great Falls, Helena, Missoula and Kalispell, as well as seven offices in Wyoming and one in South Dakota.

VOA operates the Veterans Family Support Services (SSVF) program, which is funded by the Department of Veterans Affairs and has been available to veterans throughout the state of Montana since 2015. The SSVF program offers families eligible veterans outreach services, case management, assistance obtaining VA benefits, case management services, and financial assistance.

The addition of an office in Miles City means that services will be more readily available to veterans facing housing issues in the area. VOA is dedicated to serving veterans facing homelessness with a holistic approach that includes working with community partners to create a continuum of care.

Veterans in need of housing assistance should contact VOA at 1.844.4.VOA.Vet.
