At Darby House, we are proud to be of utmost service to those who have served our country.
In order to meet the needs of our local veterans, we work very closely with local VA Officers to provide the best support.
As a team, we will assess the level of care you may need or can qualify for, evaluate qualifying information for Veteran's Benefits, and research and explain the resources you need to complete your VA Process. To make the process as easy as possible, Darby House offers a Deferral Program to help you bridge the gap in funding while your application is being processed.
