DAV Dept. of Washington

      The DAV Department of Washington is our state-wide association of Chapters and employs Department Service Officers (DSO) in various places around the State.

      We are not government funded and we do not charge disabled veterans for our services. We do not operate clubs, bars or bingo halls in any of our buildings in Washington. We do provide service offices to help veterans in most of our chapter offices.

      All of our operating revenues come from our membership, our fund-raising drives in the community, tax-deductible gifts, grants and donations. We are always raising funds to support our mission of service and building resources to improve the outreach and delivery of service to veterans in need of help.
