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.

 

 

U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee Works to Help Dying Veterans

Homeless and dying veterans live on the very edge of society. Most people don’t think about them.   They don’t have lobbyists; they don’t have family structures to pick them up when they are down. The simply live on the streets, afflicted with diseases such as Alzheimers, AIDS, or a myriad of chronic illnesses. Together, you and I can change that narrative.

You can help by putting pressure on Congress to finally connect the dots and create a network of hospice facilities for homeless veterans with terminal diseases. Your 2014 “Help Dying Veterans” petition will be in your mailbox in early September and it is imperative that you sign your petition and rush it back to the Committee in a timely manner.

These honorable veterans deserve a dignified way to spend their final hours, rather than dying scared and alone on the streets of this great country. We owe it to them. It’s our duty. Your 2014 “Help Dying Veterans” petition will be in your mailbox soon. Don’t let our American heroes down.
