Our Vision

DAV Chapter 36, Pinal County Arizona's vision since it's inception in 2012, is to help all Veterans in Pinal County file all their VA claims to obtain the VA benefits they deserve!

Our Mission

We help Veterans
file VA Claims

We are Dedicated Performers to our cause

We are dedicated to a single purpose: empowering veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. We accomplish this by ensuring that veterans and their families can access the full range of benefits available to them!

This mission is carried forward by our 7 volunteer Chapter Service Officers:

Providing free, professional assistance in filing cliams for veterans and their family's in obtaining benefits and services earned through military service and provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).


....................Help Us Make This A Reality..................

Our Project

Project start date: 8/1/2018

We leased this building from the City of Coolidge in order to expand our offering to our homeless Veterans in Pinal County. The building is located at 340 W. Main, Coolidge AZ 85128.

Our Progress

This new building allows us to house medical equipment such as hospital beds, walkers, and battery powered chairs and to provide them to our Veterans in need, (all free of charge.) Additionally, we will be able to provide services where homeless Vets can come and clean up and leave with a fresh set of clean clothes. This center will allow us to house a computer lab where Veterans can come, learn and use the lab to communicate with VA.

A lot has happened in the last four and a half years such as a new roof, new air conditioners, new plumbing and bathrooms, new flooring, new wall configurations and new paint, a connex storage box, and now the inside is complete. We are working to finish the outside back of the building with a state of the art shade tent, a block wall and a concrete pad where we can gather outside when the weather turns hot.

DAV Chapter 36 and the Veterans of Pinal County put our faith that our local businesses, friends and neighbors would all come together to make this a dream that does come true! Our friends did come through with our request and now we have a full functioning county site ready to serve county veterans and their needs.

Thank You!

"If you hate the war, that’s fine. But you should still support the troops. They don’t get to pick where they’re deployed. They just gave the American people a blank check for anything up to and including the value of their lives, and the least everyone else can do is be thankful. Buy them dinner. Mow their yard. Bake them cookies." ~ Chris Kyle

Join us at Unit 36 to help Veterans live better lives

Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary Unit 36 Pinal County Arizona

We are here to support our local Veterans

Since 1922 the Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary DAVA, has partnered with the DAV parent organization in their mission of service to disabled veterans and their families. That relationship has continued to flourish and the blended organizations have achieved many victories in their quest to improve the quality of life our veterans rightly deserve.

With nearly a quarter-million members, the DAVA programs are far-reaching and the personal rewards fulfilling.

Our members are diverse in their interests which is what has made the DAVA so successful. Our programs include Americanism, Community Service, Junior Activities, Legislative, and VA Voluntary Services. Foremost in our hearts is the goal of assuring benefit entitlement and compassion for our disabled veterans and their families.

Thanks for your continued support. . . . . . . .

Your tax deductible donations go to our mission of free service to Veterans, survivors and dependents of Pinal County. It seems like just yesterday we were running our organization from our homes. We now have 7 Chapter Service Officer volunteers, on a regular schedule, helping Veterans file their claims at our office, free of charge.

Additionally we can now help Veterans break out of emergency financial situations when they arise with our emergency financial funds project. This could not have been accomplished without your generous donations. We are working towards expanding our service offering in small but meaningful ways. Our new facilities will allow us to get this accomplished.

Our local Chapter is managed mostly by Veterans over 65 years old. We depend on the community to help us carry the heavy load because some of us are suffering from wounds or illnesses incurred or contracted during our service to our country or maybe we are just plain old.

HELP US REACH OUT TO VETERANS there's more than one way that you can personally help DAV's mission to empower veterans to lead high-quality lives with respect and dignity. If you're an injured or ill veteran or you know of one who might need DAV's help, please let us know.

We will keep up the good fight but we cannot do it without you.
