About the Iowa Veterans Home Honored to serve... The beautiful Iowa Veterans Home campus spans almost 150 acres, with seven main residence care buildings. The purpose of IVH is to provide professional care for veterans and or their spouses in an environment of friendliness and warmth with understanding and caring staff.
What Volunteering at IVH Means...
Giving back to a veteran who protected our freedom
Showing a veteran that their sacrifice for our country is not forgotten
Taking the time to make a veteran smile
Giving attention to a veteran's spouse to say thank you for the support she has given her husband who served
The veterans have served all of us through their military duty. They have fought battles, manned defenses and, often, made great sacrifices for us. As they and their spouses enter the personal battles of disability, illness, and old age, it is our turn to serve them.
With approximately over 900 State employees providing direct and indirect care for our residents, our team includes 103 job titles. We also have employees that may not be technically on the State of Iowa payroll system, however, they continue to do great work for our residents. Our story becomes even more interesting when we mix in all of the volunteers that work with our residents on a daily basis. Our commitment to care for our Iowa Veterans and their spouses is strong at the Iowa Veterans Home.
