The U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee is proud to announce that it has renewed its membership in the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans.  The NCHV is dedicated to ending homelessness among veterans by shaping public policy, promoting collaboration, and building the capacity of service providers.
 

Our Mission

The U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee is committed to standing up for the nearly 22,000 veterans who have no home and who are suffering from a terminal illness.  The Committee's mission is to lobby Congress to do right by our heroes and fund the establishment of a national network of hospices dedicated to caring for our homeless and ailing heroes.

 

 

National Veterans Support Survey Highlights Need for Increased Public Education and Outreach

The data is in from the 2013 National Veterans Support Survey with interesting results (printed in the box below). The nationwide campaign highlights a critical gap in the public’s knowledge of our role and advocacy mission.

 In survey question #5, we ask respondents if they knew that the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs was actively seeking the help of private groups (such as the U.S. Veter­ans Hospice Committee) to address the problem of hospice care for homeless veterans with terminal illnesses — and 68% did not. Your continued fi­nancial support to get the message out to even more Americans will be critical if we are to succeed.

National survey campaigns are useful tools to educate the pub­lic and find new supporters who want to get involved with the plight of homeless and terminally ill veterans.
