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 Attends National Coalition for Homeless Veterans Housing Summit

             

            The U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee recently attended the National Coalition for Homeless Veterans (NCHV) “Veterans Access to Housing Summit” held in downtown Washington, D.C..

“The National Coalition for Homeless Veterans continues to do a great job in the fight to end Veteran’s homelessness,” says Legislative Director Sean Ferritor.  “They are a fantastic ally for the U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee in our effort to pressure the Department of Veterans Affairs to connect the dots and finally enact a network of hospice facilities dedicated solely to chronically and terminally ill homeless veterans,” continued Ferritor. 

The U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee was invited to participate in this year’s Housing Summit for one specific reason, and that reason is you.  Thanks to your participation in our grassroots program we have gotten the attention of the major players in the fight to end all veterans’ homelessness, and given those with terminal illnesses a voice in Washington they have never had.  Thank you, for all that you do for our military heroes in their true time of need.
