Chaplains are central to Whole Health, providing spiritual care to all enrolled Veterans. Chaplains are also available to provide limited, short-term spiritual care to staff. Some chaplain programs (such as chapel services, Jumma prayers, and Torah study) are open to both Veterans and staff.
Chaplains also advise leadership on 1st Amendment issues regarding the free exercise and non-establishment of religion. As long as the religious practices can be reasonably accommodated, we will work to make it possible for all Veterans to engage in religious and/or spiritual practices important to them while also protecting Veterans from having any religious or spiritual practices imposed on them.
