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 Learns Lessons from 114th Congress, Vigilant for 115th

The 114th Congress, although contentious at times, was productive.  Thanks to your support and participation, we’ve made encouraging progress toward our mission to convince the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to provide adequate hospice care for terminally ill homeless veterans.

“I’m very proud of the work that the Committee accomplished during the course of the 114th Congress,” states U.S. Veterans Hospice Committee Executive Director Gerald Johnson.  “From our meeting with House Veterans Affairs Chairman Jeff Miller, to our numerous meetings with high-ranking officials within the Department of Veterans Affairs, our members and supporters can be proud of the work they helped get accomplished.”

But we can’t rest on what we have accomplished in the past.  This mission to provide our military heroes with the care they deserve has only just begun.  A new administration is now in place.  The Committee must get to know an entirely new set of leaders within both the Department of Veterans Affairs, as well as the Department of Housing and Urban Development.  That’s where your support will be more important than ever.  Your constant participation in our national surveys and petition drives will continue to be the driving force in our fight to get proper end-of-life care to terminally ill homeless veterans.
