About Adopt a Veteran

90cce8e2c30bb2212262758cff0bcede424bd7f0

Adopt a Veteran through Camellia.

Many Veterans have limited or no family nearby. Without social engagement and positive interaction, Veterans' health can suffer when they lack support.

Volunteers can support local Veterans by "adopting a Veteran" and providing friendship and assistance.

Visits are made on volunteers time, a few times each month, and should last for at least 45.

Visits can include:
- General Conversation
- Readings
- Games
- Small arts and crafts
- Creating special gifts such as baked good or holiday decorations

Because this is an ongoing opportunity, volunteers should contact Camellia to coordinate a schedule.

Application Process

Require paperwork must be completed and approved before visitation. Volunteer Coordinator will facilitate first visitation.
