Veteran Advocates of
Ore-Ida, a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation,
was created to provide Veterans and Active Duty Personnel of the
Armed Forces of the United States of America a voice; and to
support, honor, recognize and advocate for their needs as members
of our Communities, States and Country.
Veteran Advocates of Ore-Ida was incorporated as a non-profit
in Oregon in March of 2008. VAOI was created to ensure veterans
and their dependents have access to every service to which they're entitled.
"We're not here to compete with the local VFW, the American Legion
or veterans services agencies," says Ron Verini, chairman and president.
"We're here to complement them. What we do is help veterans make
connections with service agencies."
VAOI's main office is in Ontario, Oregon, an Event Centeris located in Baker City, Oregon (pictured above), and a packaging building in Nyssa, Oregon is used for sending supplies to overseas troops and for events.
