Delaware Commission of Veterans Affairs



DCVA Logo

The Delaware Commission of Veterans Affairs (DCVA) was established in 1987 to support Delaware veterans, their spouses and children. The Commission serves as an advisory board to the Governor for issues that impact the 72,000 military veterans living in the First State.


The Commission consists of 15 members, each of whom serves a four-year term. Ten members are selected by veteran service organizations and five at-large members are appointed by the Governor to represent veterans throughout Delaware.


The DCVA appoints the Executive Director of the Office of Veterans Services (OVS) and helps shape and direct the mission of OVS. In addition, the DCVA serves as the board of directors of the Delaware Veterans Home.

DCVA partners with Dover Mayor, Robin Christiansen, on the Mayor’s Crisis Awareness Challenge which is an outreach to battle Delaware veteran suicides.

The Mayor’s Crisis Awareness Challenge committee meets regularly. It is made up of veteran advocates, mental health professionals, emergency personnel and volunteers working to get critical information to veterans and their families and friends.
