Since COVID-19, the Veterans’ Homes across the state have lost many of their volunteers. Across the nation, the number of volunteers dropped seven percent, from 30 to 23 percent, between 2019-2021.
The Homes, because of COVID-19 and mandated restrictions, experienced an even greater decline in volunteerism. Building back IDVA’s volunteer base is critical to providing important services and opportunities for residents in its care.
