Clark County Veterans Assistance Center
CCVAC Volunteers are the best!
Clark County Veterans Assistance Center (CCVAC) was born from many conversations by local Vietnam Veterans who said, “There oughta be a place…” Through the dedication of countless volunteered hours, the center opened in 2011 as a 501 c3 non-profit organization. The mission was, and remains that, of providing a welcome and safe environment to assist Veterans and their families in obtaining benefits, services, and resources to meet basic needs.
CCVAC was recently nominated for the Nonprofit Network of Southwest Washington’s Excellence in Volunteer Program Award. The Center went from serving roughly 800 Veterans its first year to 3,000 Veterans last year with a projection of even more Veterans served in 2015. The center benefits from the talents, skills, and time of roughly 60 unique volunteers each year. Pam Davis (sixth from left), CCVAC Volunteer Coordinator says, “We are honored to receive the nomination for our volunteer program. We have tremendous volunteers who give so freely.”

2014 VOLUNTEER OF THE YEAR
Judy Russel received the Clark County Veterans Assistance Center (CCVAC) 2014 Volunteer of the Year award. According to CCVAC President, Joe Fettig, Judy was highly instrumental in securing the Clark County County Veterans Assistance and Resource Program (“The Fund”) at the center. The fund was previously administered by the Clark County Human Services Council at the Community Health Building on Fourth Plain. Thanks to the diligent efforts of many volunteers, CCVAC began administrating the fund in July 2014. Judy’s contribution to bringing The Fund “in-house” stands out due to her untiring efforts of wrestling paperwork and chasing information. Judy currently serves as staff for The Fund in the role of Fund Administrator in the morning and as a volunteer Veterans Service Officer in the afternoon. CCVAC extends heartfelt appreciation and thanks to Judy for all she gives to the center and the Veterans we serve.
