Join our volunteer program for Veterans

VNHC has joined We Honor Veterans, a program of National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization and the Department of Veterans Affairs, to empower hospice professionals to meet the unique needs of dying veterans. Through We Honor Veterans, VNHC offers a Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteer program where veteran hospice volunteers are matched with patients who are also veterans and seeking hospice care. Veteran volunteers have the unique ability to relate and connect with each patient thereby creating an environment where life review and healing may occur. Veteran volunteer activities may include taking part in recognition events such as a pinning ceremony. VNHC also participates in the Santa Barbara Vet Net program.
