Additionally, your VSO provides referrals and assistance with housing, alternate sources of income, such as Social Security and the VA, employment and educational opportunities, fuel assistance programs, area food banks and shelters. We are committed to ensuring that the veterans of Fairhaven and their families receive the assistance that they are eligible for and to encourage them to seek permanent, life-long solutions to their needs.
