Prior Years
For the prior years of 2018, 2019, and 2020 we have been able to provide $104,000 in assistance to Sonoma County Veterans thanks to you, our supporters. Most of this went to keeping Veterans in their homes and keeping the lights and power turned on for them
Vet Connect wants to put out a BIG THANK YOU to both the local Daughters of the American Revolution for donation a bunch of knitted Afghans and Hats and Big O Tires who every year at this time performs a Jacket Drive for us.
We also wish to thank the Bethlehem Foundation who awarded us with a very generous grant in our work to assist Veterans
James Casey and Richard Jones talks to the local paper on how Vet Connect wants to resume services to Sonoma County Vetersns.

June 2nd and we are still not able to get back into the Veteran's Building so we had our monthly Board Meeting via ZOOM!
June and we are still on lockdown due to the Coronavirus, however President Richard Jones appeared in the local paper with an atricle on Vets and PTSD. You can read about it by clicking HERE
Due to the outbreak of the Coronavirus, especially in that it seems to target older people and those with underlying health conditions, which is a good percentage of most of us; the normally scheduled Vet Connect Tuesday Clinics will be suspended for the remainder of the month of March.
We will be there for March 10th but attendance will be voluntary on the part of our providers.
If you have an emergency and require our services, call us at 707-755-1417 and we will arrange to address your needs.
Keep watching this web site for news of when we go back to regular operations.
