Serving Virginia Veterans and Families - Building a Community of Strength
Veteran and Family Support (VVFS) (formerly the Virginia Wounded Warrior Program) monitors and coordinates behavioral health, rehabilitative, and supportive services through an integrated, and responsive system of care. VVFS provides peer and family support and care coordination services to Virginia veterans, members of the Virginia National Guard and Armed Forces Reserves (not in federal service), and their families with a special emphasis on those affected by stress related conditions or traumatic brain injuries resulting from military service.
VWWP was officially rebranded to Virginia Veteran and Family Support on October 1, 2015. Our program’s new brand is wellness focused and incorporates the family unit. The new brand avoids references to wounds, illness, or injuries in order to help ensure that those we seek to serve are more comfortable in seeking and accepting assistance.
