All initial appeals of denied admissions must first be filed with the appropriate homes' administrator. Appeals must be in writing, stating the reasons you feel you should be admitted to VHC. If the appropriate home administrator denies your admission and you wish to appeal, you may initiate your second appellate step by contacting the California Veterans Board at P.O. Box 942895, Sacramento, CA 94295-0001. The board will provide you with an appeal form if you did not receive one from the home.
