Adult Day Center


Volunteers at each of our Homes contribute tremendously to the quality of life of our Veterans. Volunteers provide invaluable support by sharing their experience, time and compassion with our Residents. Family members, friends and community members play a key role in helping us serve those who served through generous donations of time and money. If you or someone you know would like to make a difference, please contact us at (612) 548-5993 to inquire about donations, or (612) 548-5751 for volunteer opportunities.
