Veteran Resource Centers

Veterans Connect at the Library

If you are a veteran who needs assistance with housing, job placement, health care, education, legal services, mental health care, or substance abuse treatment, contact the Veteran Peer Assistance Network (VPAN). Speak to a live person from 9 a.m. - 9 p.m. by calling the helpline at (800) 854-7771 (ext. 3). For online requests, email veterans@dmh.lacounty.gov, or fill out the VPAN referral form. See the Los Angeles Department of Mental Health's Veteran Services for more information.

Other assistance is available from your County Veteran Service Office, from CalVet at 1-800-952-5626, or contact the library through Ask a Librarian.

Through the generous support of the California State Library, the Los Angeles Public Library has received a Library Services & Technology Act (LSTA) Grant to establish four Veterans Resource Centers, a resource dedicated to helping Veterans and their families. The Centers are located at the Central Library, Exposition Park Regional Library, the Mid Valley Regional Library, and the Van Nuys Branch Library

Veterans Resource Centers currently are not offering in-person services. If you are a Veteran and need assistance, please reach out to the Department of Lifelong Learning at 213-228-7380.
