Valhalla is primarily focused on providing services for the 26,255 (United States Census Bureau, 2012) Veterans who live in Lackawanna (19,349), Susquehanna (4,377), and Wyoming (2,529) counties. These Veterans live in areas where there are few Veteran services available either through governmental or non-governmental organizations. This population group is widely dispersed throughout the three counties and in many cases is disenfranchised with the traditional services provided by the Veterans Administration or by the distance they need to travel in order to receive services.
