Mission Statement

Our Mission

The California Association of County Veterans Service Officers (CACVSO) is an organization of professional veterans advocates.   In California, the County Veterans Service Officer plays a critical role in the veteran’s advocacy system and is often the initial contact in the community for veterans services. Through the County Veterans Service Officer, the CACVSO is committed to California counties to provide a vital and efficient system of services and advocacy to veterans, their dependents and survivors.

The CACVSO promotes state and federal legislation and policy supportive of veterans’ rights and issues, in harmony with our national obligation to veterans of the United States armed forces. The association provides a medium for the exchange of ideas, information, training and support to facilitate delivery of services to nearly three million California veterans.

The CACVSO recognizes the importance and merit of the congressionally-chartered veterans service organizations, and is committed to fostering a mutually beneficial relationship with them for the common good of all veterans. It is the intent of this organization that every veteran residing in California receives the benefits and services to which they are entitled by law and moral obligation.
