Ohio Department of Veterans Services - Ohio Veterans Home


The Ohio Department of Veterans Services (DVS) serves Ohio Veterans by actively identifying, connecting with and advocating for veterans and their families. Ohio is home to more than 848,000 veterans - the sixth largest population of veterans in the United States.

DVS coordinates the training and certification of Ohio's County Veterans Service officers and County Veterans Service commissioners in all 88 counties to ensure accurate US Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) claims that maximize Ohio veterans' benefits and compensation. 

The DVS also works to support Ohio employers with knowledge of military skill and culture so they can better recognize the advantages of hiring veterans as well as more effectively recruit and retain former service members as part of their workforce.
