About

We are looking for active and retired Veterans of all ages, ranks and service affiliations to provide emotional support for their fellow Veterans at the end of life. We are growing our program titled We Honor Veterans which focuses on the specific and unique needs of Veterans as they face the end of their lives. One of the greatest parts of that program involves the availability of Hospice trained Veterans (we do all the training at no charge!) to provide a listening ear, supportive shoulder or comforting hand to our Veteran patients who request a fellow Veteran to visit them. Our Veteran Volunteers will also be able to conduct pinning and certification ceremonies by the bedside of our dying Veterans. This work is very important and very special. Please let us know if you'd like to be part of this program and team!
