Organization: Help Heal VeteransAbout:
For more than 45 years, we were known as Help Hospitalized Veterans. As technology and medical care have improved, many of the veterans we serve are not hospitalized, in fact, many receive treatment in their homes and other locations.
With that in mind, we have updated our name to Help Heal Veterans (HEAL VETS) to better reflect the modern reality of the work we do. The core of our organization remains the same. Our mission is to provide therapeutic craft kits to every veteran who wants them.
HHV mission is to enrich the lives of veterans and military personnel. HHV provides therapeutic arts & crafts kits to veterans and active duty patients receiving health care (at federal, state and private hospitals and nursing homes). These kits keep hands active and minds alert during recuperation after surgery or rehabilitation and let veterans know they have not been forgotten and that people care. The Craft Kits we produce are designed to support the unique needs of each veteran, and can then be kept or given to a loved one as a gift when completed.
