Veterans Residential Services of Wilson (VRSW) offers assistance to low-income veterans residing in Wilson and the surrounding counties who have received other than a dishonorable discharge.

VRSW aims to make a difference in the lives of these veterans through its assistance and through the assistance of other resources. We provide assistance for housing needs or other needs that make stable housing difficult. We provide veterans with financial assistance, emergency assistance, and employment training. We also make Veterans' Referrals to the Department of Social Services, Homeless Shelters, Transitional Housing, Vocational Rehabilitation Offices, Local Landlords, Division of Workforce Solutions, Community Colleges, the VFW, and the DAV. Please see the list on the right for additional services we provide.

If you would like to apply for assistance, make a donation, or receive more information, please contact VRSW at (252) 237-4778 or you can e-mail Claudia Baker (Executive Director) at
