Veterans Services & Programs

Veteran Standing at Memorial Day Event

Mayor Nicola Smith and the City Council are committed to making Lynnwood  a veterans-supportive and ready city. The discussion began with a Veterans Services Round Table in 2015, when a diverse group of services providers gathered to collaborate, share resources and figure out a way to provide better services to our nation’s heroes. Through dedicated volunteers and great partnerships, here are the programs and services proudly available today to serve our nation’s heroes.

All these grass roots services continue to grow. It is with great pride and honor to say that Lynnwood is a Veterans-Supportive and Ready city where our nation’s heroes can live, work, educate, recreate – and thrive!
