Hospital & Veterans Affairs Voluntary Services

Volunteering in hospitals around the country

Hospital & VAVS Program

The goal of the Hospital & VAVS program is to meet the needs of hospitalized patients in VA Medical Centers and other hospitals throughout this country.



In 1928 Volunteer Hospital work became the second National Program

adopted by the Ladies Auxiliary VFW. As America's troops return from

battle and aging warriors need medical attention, the Ladies Auxiliary

has been there to assist with a cheerful smile, an encouraging word,

and time to write or read a letter from loved ones.

The organization volunteers 1.8 million hours a year.
