VFW’S VA Voluntary Service Program

For 116 years, the VFW has been dedicated to ensuring veterans receive the care and benefits they deserve. Since the VA’s Voluntary Service program’s inception in 1946, VFW members and supporters have been volunteering their time at VA medical facilities nationwide, donating hundreds of thousands of service hours annually and providing much needed support and companionship to our nation’s heroes and their families.

Making the decision to volunteer and donate your personal time to our nation’s heroes while they are receiving care at a VA facility is an amazing way to give back and thank those who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.

Everyone can help make a difference to a veteran and the VFW’s VA Voluntary Service program makes volunteering easy!

The VFW’s VA Voluntary Service program offers a unique level of support and experience that only an organization with a strong service history like the VFW’s can provide. From experienced VFW mentors with a clear understanding of VA infrastructure and providing the support you need, to national recognition for volunteer accomplishments and dedication, the VFW is here to ensure sure you get the most out of your volunteer service experience.

With over 6,000 regular volunteers at over 150 health care facilities, the VFW’s volunteer representatives perform a vital role at VA health care facilities nationwide.
