Why support VGH:
Help veterans and their families during their time of medical need. Your support removes common barriers to access healthcare by providing free overnight accommodations, transportation assistance, and support with basic needs.
Why we support:
VGH was founded on the notion that no veteran should go without the healthcare they need. Our nonprofit was founded in 1994 when it was discovered veterans and their families who traveled to the area for medical care would sleep in their cars because they could not afford the cost of a motel room. In response, a two-bedroom brick home was purchased to offer free overnight lodging for our nation’s heroes and their loved ones. Today veterans are offered a 16,000 sq ft facility with 33 beds, a deluxe kitchen, and comfortable accommodations designed to promote wellness and recovery.
How we support Veterans:
Free overnight lodging
Transportation assistance to and from medical appointments
Help with basic needs such as food, clothing, and immediate essentials
A dedicated personal care assistant to help guests with meal prep, medication reminders, personal hygiene, and companionship
