Service Area: Nationwide
Serving: Veterans [Blind/Visually Impaired] and their Families
Description: Operation Peer Support (OPS) is a program that was designed by the Blinded Veterans Association to support the hundreds of men and women that were returning to the United States blinded or experiencing significant visual impairment in connection with their service fighting the Global War on Terror, Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) and Operation Enduring Freedom (OEF). However, over the years our program has widened its participation to all eras of visually impaired veterans. These events have significantly impacted many veterans’ lives by assisting them with accomplishing and overcoming challenges thru rehabilitation.
BVA supports Blinded Veterans with Veterans Assistance Programs. Since 1945, BVA has been advocating for blind veterans and their families to assist them in regaining their independence. We offer a range of veteran’s assistance programs which are available to any veteran whether they are a member of BVA or not. We provide support for veterans through funding, advocacy, and assistance with navigating the Department of Veterans Affairs claims processes to ensure seamless integration.
