FREEHOLD, NJ – The Monmouth County Veterans Service Office recently unveiled the “Veteran’s Resource Guide” on the Monmouth County website at www.visitmonmouth.com.  

“The Freeholders pledged to assist our veterans - past, present, and future - to attain the benefits and services to which they are entitled and established the Veterans Service Office a few years ago,” said Freeholder John P. Curley, liaison to the County’s Human Services area that includes the Veterans Service Office. “This is our latest effort in fulfilling that pledge.”

The guide consolidates the numerous services available in Monmouth County to the veteran and his or her family in one document that can be printed out and kept as a ready-reference.   

“By gathering all this information in one guide, a veteran now has a centralized start point to search for information on schools, jobs, counseling, veterans organizations, or transportation to a veteran’s affairs clinic.” said Michael Ruane, director of the Monmouth County Office on Aging, Disabilities and Veterans Services. “There are many groups, including churches, civic organizations and businesses, who help our veterans. This guide pulls together all that information in one place.”

Ruane went on to state that the guide is continuing to grow and will be updated and published to the County website monthly.

The County encourages those who know of individuals, groups or businesses that provide services or benefits for veterans and their families to contact the County Veterans Service Office at 21 Main and Court Center, Freehold or call 732-431-7450 to determine if they should be added to the guide.  

“This is just the beginning,” said Curley. “Our Veterans Service staff is looking to develop other ways to complement the guide and disseminate time-sensitive information about job openings, job fairs and other relevant news to the veterans. We are proud of what our veterans have done for our country; we want them to know that we have resources to assist them.”
