Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care Service’s Voluntary Service Department is proud to offer a variety of programs for volunteers and community partners to engage with our healthcare network and support our Veterans.  Through various volunteer programs, donation opportunities, and special events, the Voluntary Service Department offers a way for all members of the community to show their support and care of the Veterans of southeast Louisiana.  Our goal is to create meaningful and fun volunteer opportunities that will have a positive and lasting impact on our Veterans.


Individual Volunteer Opportunities

Our hospital offers many exciting new opportunities for volunteers to engage with Veterans.  Our goal is to create a team of volunteers with meaningful assignments.  As we grow the hospital, we continue to grow our volunteer program, some of our newest assignments are: Patient Escort Program, Community Living Center, Emergency Room, Pharmacy, and Volunteer Driver.  Volunteer orientations are held twice a month, please contact 1-800-935-8387 extension 62105 or vhanolvoluntaryservice@va.gov for more information or to schedule an orientation.

Corporate, Community, and Group Volunteer Opportunities

If your group is looking for a one day, quarterly, or monthly volunteer activity, Southeast Louisiana Veterans Health Care System’s Voluntary Service employees can work with you to create a tailored volunteer program.  We’ve worked with diverse groups from across the country wanting to serve our Veterans.  We know your group has the passion and talents to “serve those who have served.”  We look forward to working with you on designing a day of service or reoccurring service project for your organization or business. 


We are pleased to announce the availability of E-Donate, an online donation option that will provide community members who wish to give back to Veterans at the medical facility a simple and safe way to pledge their support to the fund of their choice.  With the click of a mouse, anyone can donate online at any time to give Veterans help that goes well beyond their health care. Through E-Donate, donors can select from a number of accounts at the medical center they wish to donate to. U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs administrative costs are appropriated so donors can be 100 percent certain their donations will go directly to the funds and Veteran patients they select.

  • General Purpose
