Responding to the need to integrate community and Veteran Affairs resources, the United States Department of Veterans Affairs has commissioned a MyVA Communities Board for the Portland VA Health Care System with the goal of expanding resources, options and opportunities for military veterans and their families.
MyVA Cascadia is an independent board which is dedicated to developing meaningful resource partnerships with established community organizations, leaders and programs focused on meeting the needs of the diverse veteran population and their families in the VA Portland Health Care System catchment area. The Portland VA Health Care System catchment area is the largest in Oregon and includes SW Washington, the Portland Metro area, the coast from Astoria to Newport, south to Corvallis/Philomath, and east to Central Oregon.
MyVA Communities is one leg of a larger VA transformation plan aimed at putting the veteran first and allowing veterans to drive VA priorities instead of those priorities being developed in Washington, DC. MyVA Communities are planned for every state in the country.
