The Veterans House & Service Center (VHSC) is ​dedicated to having a “Hands On Approach” assisting our ​clients so that all areas of needs are met by providing ​Veterans, and their surviving spouses with access to care, ​reduction of re-submissions and re-encounters, bring ​increased awareness to veterans about illnesses related to ​their military exposures, and referrals to VA healthcare ​or VA community care in order to reduce preventable ​instances of heart disease, hypertension and stroke.

Why we’re Here

There are over 17K veterans who reside in Henry County and 20-30K in Clayton and surrounding ​counties. VSG believes with increased support from our community partners, we will be able to ​provide assistance to a majority of these veterans and their surviving dependents.

What we Offer our Veterans

Hot Breakfast

Military Camaraderie

Veterans (especially ​homeless vets) can stop in ​and have a hot breakfast ​with us every Monday and ​Wednesday from 8:00 a.m. ​until 10:00 a.m.

Clothes Closet

The Clothes Closet ​provides clothing for ​veterans. The clothing is a ​mixture of gently used and ​brand new clothing ​(Donated by Ralph Lauren ​– Tanger Mall) and gently ​used clothing that has been ​donated to us from the ​local community. We have ​new and gently used ​women and men clothing.


Military camaraderie is a unique ​bond that transcends time, duty, ​and service. It’s a connection that’s ​often hard to describe yet so ​palpable for those who’ve ​experienced it. Whether on the ​front lines or during times of peace, ​the sense of belonging and mutual ​respect within the military ​community is unparalleled.

Judgement Free Zone

VSG offers a space free of judgment, ​where we can share stories of loss, ​trauma, and recovery. It’s a healing ​process where one realizes they aren’t ​alone. Their brothers and sisters in ​arms are with them every step of the ​way.
