Welcome to VEO Partnerships!

One of the Veterans Experience Office (VEO) goals is to create a community of practice with community partners allowing Veterans and their families across all eras and demographics to access community resources and care, improve the Veteran’s experience, and create a coordinated support system to make services easier, more effective, and delivered with positive emotion.

In support of the current VA Secretary’s priorities, VEO coordinates across the department to meet the health and benefits needs of our Veteran customers by establishing community-level, public and private partnerships to bridge gaps in services, foster knowledge exchange, and conduct outreach with underserved communities to support Veterans experiences.
