Kent County Veterans Services

We aim to serve the veterans in our community, to assist them in getting the benefits they are entitled to at county, state, and federal levels, as well as connecting them with resources in the community.

The Kent County Veterans Services was established under PA 192 of 1953 in September of 2008. The KCVS is funded through Kent County General Funds and exists to serve the veterans of Kent County and their families.
