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 Executive Director Gerald Johnson Visits D.C.Veterans Hospital

U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee Executive Director Gerald Johnson recently toured the facilities at the Washington, D.C. VA Medical Center to see first-hand one of the nation’s busiest veterans medical centers.

“The first thing I asked to see was their hospice unit,” states Johnson.  “Our military veterans, especially those in their greatest time of need deserve only the best care,” continued Johnson.  “From what I was able to see at the VA center, they are doing a wonderful job caring for our brave men and women of the military.  Now we must work to expand this level of care to include terminally ill homeless veterans.”

The U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee will continue to press Congress to allocate money to enhance the Department of Veterans Affairs to not only properly care for terminally ill homeless veterans, but to utilize funding to expand its reach to identify potential health risks that homeless veterans face.
