Soldiers' Angels is one of the few nonprofit agencies with a voting seat on the VA National Advisory Council and approval to work within VA Hospitals. As deployments continue to draw down, our team is shifting many of our resources to support a growing veteran population. While many organizations are only focusing on Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, Soldiers’ Angels supports veterans of all generations.
Soldiers’ Angels staff and volunteers are able to coordinate events and activities, organize corporate partner participation, visit patients and approve volunteers to join the Veteran Support Program.
Patient visits: Veteran Support Volunteers visit patients at the VA Hospital. During their visits, the volunteers talk with the patients and have the opportunity to distribute comfort items to them to help make their hospital stay more pleasant. Some of these items include:
Bi-weekly or monthly luncheons or dinners are organized to bring the veteran patients together and offer them a taste of home with a warm meal and friendly volunteer interaction. These may include movie night, themed meals, holiday meal events, Thanksgiving dinner, and summer outdoor BBQ's
Valor IT: Provides technology products to support service members recovering from hand wounds and other severe injuries. Learn more about the Soldiers’ Angels Valor IT program here.
Wish List Fulfillment : Each VA has unique needs for their veterans. Soldiers’ Angels fulfills these “wish lists” through donor partners and volunteer efforts. Soldiers’ Angels has fulfilled many wish lists, which have included: coffee pots for break rooms, wireless internet for patient rooms and waiting rooms, bikes, bike racks, landscaping and even renovating and replacing patios and courtyards.
Renovation and Repair Projects: Renovation and repair projects are very important to improving the morale of the veteran patients. Healing is greatly influenced by having a comfortable and warm environment. Soldiers’ Angels projects include landscaping, painting, planting, building therapeutic gardens, and other building projects at VA’s across the country.
