The Virginia Veteran & Family Support Program (VVFS) is operated statewide by the Virginia Department of Veterans Services and provides outreach, connection and support to veterans and their families as they address the challenges of military service, transition, deployments, post-traumatic stress or other behavioral health concerns as well as traumatic brain injuries and physical injuries. As part of this, VVFS seeks to connect veterans and their loved ones with treatment programs that improve their quality of life, outlook and overall success. These include both service-related behavioral health and substance use treatments. In their role to link and connect, VVFS assists in directing veterans to VA treatment programs and, where access and eligibility are barriers, the program attempts to identify a community-based program that meets each veteran's needs. Where financing is a barrier to care, the program works to arrange coverage through either community-based funding where available, or the generous support of the Virginia Veterans Services Foundation (VSF).
