Disabled American Veteran VA Representative

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Orlando VA Medical Center

  • 5 people are interested

Disabled American Veterans is a Veteran Service Organization that directly supports the Orlando VA Medical Center, all the outpatient clinics in the catchment area and is a national organization that serves the needs of all Veterans.

Our local Disabled American Veterans (DAV) organization provides support in resources of volunteers and donations. The representatives attend quarterly meetings held by our office, the Center for Development and Civic Engagement, which was formerly Voluntary Service. In these meetings we discuss upcoming events, VA news provided by our leadership as well as needs we have for our Veterans.

DAV is in need of Veterans interested in becoming the representative as well as three deputy representatives. They would need to join the DAV in order to represent the organization locally and would be appointed to do so by the national office. They will attend their local chapter meetings, meet with other chapters in the Central Florida area to communicate the needs and news of the VA and collaborate with our office to serve our Veterans.

If you can see yourself serving in this vital role, please reach out to us and we will set up a meeting to discuss it with our current DAV representative.

About Orlando VA Medical Center

Location:

13800 Veterans Way, Orlando, FL 32827, US

Mission Statement

Orlando VA Voluntary Service is committed to the development of volunteer programs in support of quality, Veteran focused care through the recruitment of volunteers, utilization of community resources, and active involvement and engagement of community stakeholders, with our Veterans. On March 3, 1865, a month before the Civil War ended, President Abraham Lincoln authorized the first-ever national soldiers’ and sailors’ asylum to provide medical and convalescent care for discharged members of the Union Army and Navy volunteer forces. The asylum was the first of its kind in the world to provide civilian medical care to Veterans of temporary volunteer forces. This is where the VA originated from.

Description

Today’s Veterans Health Administration (VHA) originated during the Civil War as the first federal hospitals and Domiciliaries ever established for the nation’s volunteer military forces.

Our goal is to ensure that the volunteer experience at the OVAMC is as rewarding to the volunteer as it is beneficial to the patients, families, visitors, and caregivers.

Our Volunteers provide important functions throughout the OVAMC to help make our patients’ visits a more enjoyable one. Through the on-boarding process each volunteer’s talents and skills are closely matched with one of our wide variety of assignments. To learn more about this process and how you can begin to serve our nation’s Veterans at the OVAMC
