Executive Office of Veterans' Services (EOVS)

The mission of the Executive Office of Veterans’ Services (EOVS) is to act as the primary advocate on behalf of all the Commonwealth’s veterans.

EOVS provides our veterans and their families with quality support services and directs an emergency financial assistance program for those veterans and their dependents who are in need.

Who we serve

Eligible veterans and family members may get financial assistance, peer support from the Statewide Advocacy for Veteran Empowerment (SAVE) team, connection to the Women Veterans' Network (WVN), or opportunity for burial at the Massachusetts Veteran Memorial Cemeteries in Agawam and Winchendon. 

The Executive Office of Veterans' Services also oversees the Commonwealth's Veterans' Homes, formerly Soldiers' Homes, in Chelsea and Holyoke, which eligible veterans can apply to for long term care.
