BECOME A VOLUNTEER

 
 

VOLUNTEERS LIKE YOU MAKE ALL THE DIFFERENCE

TO OUR VETERANS

 

Volunteers are the heart of our community. They are a big difference with everything we do and can make a resident smile by just being there. Giving your time even if it is just a few hours can bring so much happiness to our veterans and their families. It is also a way to keep costs low and helps us keep our Veterans Village running smoothly.

Volunteers like you perform a variety of services. By bringing your skills and time you are giving back to those who have given so much to all of us.

Help from qualified individuals for improvements are always appreciated.

Bringing your light into our residentís lives is such a wonderful feeling of satisfaction. Volunteers contribute in so many ways and can bring a bigger sense of purpose in a veteranís life. Studies show interacting with seniors decreases depression and reduces anxiety as well as giving back to your community.
