We are now offering online availability to obtain donations through an Amazon Wishlist.

We have five programs that have established wish lists:

  1. Homeless and Community Based Mental Health Program Needs
  • These items will be used to support Veterans experiencing homelessness, those Veterans who have recently experienced homelessness, those Veterans transitioning into permanent housing, as well as Veterans attempting to maintain housing. All Veterans are engaged in VA programming. Our homeless program has two emergency housing programs and helps support a capacity of 77 households through our HUD-VASH program. These donations are essential in helping support Veterans transitioning and maintaining  stable housing.  


  1. Community Living Center (CLC)
  • The Community Living Center is open to Veterans to assist them with skilled-care needs (post-operative/rehabilitation), short-term rehab, hospice, and respite care. Donations will be directly used to support Veteran needs when arriving and participating in treatment.


  1. General Veteran Needs
  • This is a general needs list for our Veterans receiving care in our inpatient medical units as well as Veterans receiving care in an outpatient clinic. This list encompasses general Veteran needs for items that are requested through the Center for Development and Civic Engagement (CDCE).


  1. Residential Treatment Program (RRTP):
  • Our RRTP program currently provides residential level treatment to 15 Veterans experiencing concerns with substance use, mental health, and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder as well as various other psychosocial concerns (homelessness, food insecurity, loneliness, etc.). Program tracks last between 42 and 63 days. Donations will be directly used to support Veteran needs when arriving and participating in residential treatment.


5. Whole Health Program Needs: 

  • The Whole Health program offers an opportunity for Veterans to utilize a diverse programming and activities to help meet the Veteran’s needs. Examples include Yoga, Painting, Mindfulness, Aromatherapy, and acupuncture, etc. This is an outpatient program that assists Veterans while admitted into the Medical Center and  also more predominately through outpatient clinic. 


6. Compensated Work Therapy (CWT) and Supportive Employment (SE): 

  • The CWT and SE program offers an opportunity for Veterans to re-engage with occupational services in both a therapeutic and community-centered atmosphere. Veterans are offered the opportunity to begin process of re-engaging in gainful employment that increases community reintegration and meaningful activities.
