Vermont Veterans’ Home

Many Vermont Veterans, or Veterans in the surrounding tri-state area, do not know that a residential facility for Veterans exists in Vermont, nor are they aware of the programs and care that are provided for service men and women and their spouses.  Also, this link offers important information for children who may be required to coordinate the future care of an aging parent who was in the military or for their spouse.

If you have any questions or items to be added to the agenda, please email Miriam at mrogers70@gmail.com.  If you would like to be a volunteer in the future, please come so that we can all sit down and talk about how the Giving Closet is organized, and what is expected of the volunteers when you are here.
