VA Voluntary Service has a new social prescription program: The Compassionate Contact Corps. Trained volunteers call Veterans who are lonely, socially isolated or would simply like to talk to someone.
VA Voluntary Service says thank you for more than $25 million in gifts and donations to VA designated for COVID-19 support. Communities and organizations nationwide help Veterans and their families.
More than $6,500 worth of gifts were collected during this year’s campaign at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center, ensuring every child had a gift to open this holiday season.
During this National Volunteer Week, VA facilities around the country are holding events to honor and recognize the dedicated volunteers who make life better for America's Veterans and their families.
We are often thanked by our Veterans for the assistance we provide to them. Ironically, it is we that owe each of them a debt of gratitude for their service to this great nation of ours.
This year, VA Voluntary Service —one of the largest volunteer programs in the federal government—is celebrating its 70th anniversary.
If you are a Veteran in crisis
or concerned about one, connect with our caring, qualified responders for confidential help. Many of
them are Veterans themselves.
