A national program that matches people in communities across the country with veterans who need support is now available in the Phoenix area through Hospice of the Valley.
Volunteers who join the ASU-based program, called Legacy Corps for Veterans and Military Families, receive special training in caregiving support from Hospice of the Valley. They provide companionship to patients, socialization and in-home respite care that allows caregivers to take a much-needed break. In return, Legacy Corps volunteers receive a monthly allowance and a college tuition award after a year of service. Those who are 55 or older can pass this award to a child or grandchild.
If you would love the opportunity to enrich the lives of veteran patients and their families, please contact Hospice of the Valley at (480) 844-5486 or email@example.com. To learn more about the Legacy Corps program and apply, visit hov.org/volunteer/Legacy-Corps.
