Organization Overview

It is the mission of the USO of Hampton Roads and Central Virginia to enhance the quality of life of the U.S. Armed Forces personnel and their families worldwide and to create a cooperative relationship between U.S. military communities and involved or supporting civilian communities. Our non-governmental, non-profit organization depends on corporate and individual support to fund its programs and services. In order to maintain our centers and provide our programs, it is imperative that we maintain a strong sponsor relationship with our local business and civic organizations. We also rely heavily on individual contributions and volunteers from our very supportive local communities. Our programs include emergency lodging, mobile outreach, orientation, information and referral, special holiday programs, summer concerts, military appreciation days and Flightline canteens.
