ALACHUA COUNTY, FL – The Alachua County Community Support Services Department is pleased to announce the hiring of Dan Wojcik as the new Veterans Services Program Director.  He began working with the County last year as a Veterans Services Counselor assisting veterans and their families with navigating the VA benefits process as well as other veteran issues.
