Onsite Resources


Over the past 32 years, VMC has established a wide range of community partnerships and increased our efforts to provide the most current and sought after resources for Veterans within our agency. Many of the resources and programs most valuable to a Veteran can be found right on site, either at the VMC headquarters in Old City Philadelphia or at Operating Base Cecilia in Coatesville.

On-site Resources at Operating Base Cecilia in Coatesville


Large military units establish Operating Bases – Forward Operating Bases, Contingency Operating Bases, etc. – to adjust to a mission in a particular location. Operating Base Cecilia was established to meet the needs of Veteran families in the Chester, Montgomery and Delaware County areas. In association with Catholic Social Services, VMC manages the Supportive Services for Veteran Families (SSVF) program for these counties, and also provides Veterans with access to additional services such as employment readiness, training and placement right on site. Planned future programs include additional training programs and a day drop-in center, as well as options to take services to other locations within the three-county area.


On-Site Resources at Operating Base Cecilia Include:

  • Supportive Services for Veteran Families, including the homeless outreach team
  • Veterans Service Officer (access to VA benefits and entitlements)
  • Access to emergency food and clothing and other local services
  • Transportation to and from the Coatesville VA Medical Center
  • Internet employment application assistance
  • Training courses such at ServSafe and basic computer skills
  • Personal/life skill courses such as budgeting (offered by Clarifi)

"I am the wife of a Viet Nam Veteran. My husband started going to PVMSEC 10 years ago for help. No mere words could ever express how much his life and in turn our family life has changed for the better in those years. I am and always will be grateful for the wonderful care he has received at the Philadelphia Veterans Multi-Service Center & Education Center."
