The Veterans Association of North County (VANC) is a nonprofit that was established in 2007, which serves as a one-stop resource center for all active-duty, military veterans and their families. We centralize services from diverse agencies to assist with benefits, transition training, mentoring and coaching, education, health and wellness.
VANC is known throughout Southern California as the resource center for veterans offering the most services, all at no charge.
VANC’s response to the COVID pandemic was to start a no-touch, no-contact food and diaper distribution and from April through December we served 19,101 with 89% being active-duty, given away 192,550 diapers and have delivered on an average monthly to six housebound veterans. The community has embraced the food and diaper distribution and VANC by volunteering each month for a total of 3,142 volunteer hours during the pandemic so far. VANC receives no State or Federal money and wants to give a heartfelt thank-you to each individual donor and companies supporting us to fulfill our Mission.
For over ten years, VANC has been committed to serving active-duty and military veterans. We will continue to advance our humanitarian work for our Past and Present Military Heroes!
