The Mission of the Becket Veterans' Services Department is to provide eligible veterans and their families, who are residents of Becket, and who qualify for this assistance under M.G.L. chapter 115, with financial aid, medical assistance and referral services on issues such as housing, employment opportunities, health, and education.
 
Under Chapter 115 of Massachusetts General Laws (M.G.L. Ch. 115), the Commonwealth provides a uniform program of financial and medical assistance for indigent veterans and their dependents. Qualifying veterans and their dependents receive necessary financial assistance for food, shelter, clothing, housing supplies and medical care in accordance with a formula which takes into account the number of dependants and income from all sources. Eligible dependents of deceased veterans are provided with the same benefits as they would were the veteran still living.
 
 Indirect services include referral of veterans to, and help with forms applying to, the Veteran's Administration, or the Social Security office for a more permanent solution to their needs. It also refers veterans to job employment agencies, special utility programs for the needy, food banks and shelter.
