“Connecting Veterans and Caregivers to resources earned, while Empowering Veterans to utilize those resources to Transform their lives.”
Who We Are
Welcome to Operation Veteran and Caregiver Support! We are a young 501(c) located in the northern Miami Valley of Ohio. We work with active duty military, national guard, veterans, their caregivers, and families nationwide, connecting them with resources they have earned as a result of their service to our country. We are transforming lives, one servicemember, veteran, caregiver, or family at a time.
What Do We Do?
We are most known for our Muster & Mingle events, which are twice monthly events that bring veterans and their families together to eat a meal & socialize. We bring in a variety of speakers, provide a free meal, and encourage the veterans that attend to connect with those who understand them like no one else could. In addition to our twice-monthly Muster & Mingle events, we also host 4 family events every year. We start the year out with an Easter Bunny Breakfast & Egg Hunt in partnership with VFW Post 4874 Auxiliary. In June, we host a Military and Veteran Kids Fishing Derby at a county park. August is when we host our School Supply and Snow Cone Giveaway, at WACO Air Museum in Troy, OH. We end the year with one of our favorite events, Santa’s Sweet Shop! Families are invited to come and enjoy delicious treats, crafts, and spend time with Santa and with other veteran families.
We also work one on one with veterans, their caregivers, and their families to ensure that every veteran, regardless of when they served, or their discharge status, is treated with dignity and honor. While we are not affiliated with the Veterans Administration or county level Veteran Service Offices, we work closely with them to improve the lives of veterans in our area.
In 2023 we launched a Military and Veteran Food Pantry, open Thursdays from 10:00am-1:00pm and on the 3rd Monday of the month from 5:00-8:00pm. This pantry is need based, where those in need simply show proof of veteran status and proof of address.
