The MVCs are 38-foot community outreach vehicles equipped with two confidential counseling rooms where Vet Center counselors can meet privately with those in need to provide counseling support. VA personnel are on hand to provide crisis counseling and benefits referral.
VA operates 80 Mobile Vet Centers nationwide to enhance all three primary Vet Center functions of outreach, direct service delivery, and referral.
