On July 1, 2019, the office of Sioux County Veterans Affairs will open the doors on its new site, across the street from the courthouse in Orange City! We will be located above ‘Community Health Partners’ (Public Health), on the second floor of the Sioux County Annex Building, and there will be an elevator available for those who are unable, or do not wish, to use the stairs.

Effective July 1, 2019 the new office address will be: 

213 Central Ave SE, Orange City, Iowa 51041

Phone: 712-737-1775

Fax: 712-737-9115

Office hours will remain 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday- Friday*, although it will be closed at times for training, veteran outreach events, holidays, illness, etc.  As before, appointments are strongly recommended to ensure the Veterans Service Officer’s availability on a particular day, and that the proper amount of time can be scheduled to review your particular veterans’ benefits needs.

*Please note that because Public Health hours are from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., anyone desiring to visit the VA office during county business hours before 9 a.m. or after 4 p.m. should call the office shortly before (or upon) arrival so that the VSO can meet them at the inside-entrance door to let them in.
