Homefront: Veterans Services Work Group

Our Turn to Serve

Baltimore County recognizes and appreciates the services its veterans have provided and to show homage for their contributions, the Homefront Work Group is charged with discussing strategies for case management and the delivery of services for veterans and their families who reside in the County. The work group has been acknowledged by the Maryland Department of Veterans Affairs and other county governments as one of the premiere veteran service programs in the state.
