As an organization, DAV proposes and promotes legislation that will benefit injured veterans and their families. We initiate this from chapter-based resolutions to our national conventions, then on to Congress. We provide thousands of hours of voluntary services at our five VA medical centers in Massachusetts, assisting hospitalized veterans. Our Transportation Program provides free rides between veterans’ homes and the VA medical centers for clinic appointments. Through our Local Veterans Assistance Program (LVAP), we provide services to veterans in their communities such as grocery shopping, yard work and companionship.

Our mantra for 93 years is providing counseling and assistance for those filing for benefits with the VA and state agencies. The epidemic of homelessness among veterans, especially disabled veterans, is widely known, and DAV provides these wounded warriors with much needed support. 23% of returning veterans are women, and we offer services to meet their unique needs. We also give special attention to the children of returning veterans. We are working with Golden Corral in supporting Camp Corral which helps teach these children that the altered behaviors of mom and dad are not their fault. It gives them an opportunity to talk with other children of returning veterans.
