Our Mission Statement:
To assist indigent and physically, mentally, and socially handicapped veterans through the following programs:
- transportation (SJRTD bus passes)
- food grants
- emergency rent/utility payment assistance
- counseling and claims services
- scholarships and financial support for two San Joaquin County DAV Chapters
as well as other miscellaneous needs as determined by one-on-one meetings with the veteran.
Disabled American Veteran Charities of San Joaquin County is a 501(c)3 organization and our FEIN is 94-2163383. All of the donations made to the D. A. V. Charities of San Joaquin County are tax-deductible.
Our organization was started in 1972 by a group of veterans who wanted to assist other veterans. Over the past decades, we have assisted over 5,500 veterans. Our current Board consists of both
veterans and non-veterans, but all have the heart to help the veteran community.
