Games Galore with Veterans

HandsOn volunteers will participate in an evening of games with male and female veterans at the Veterans Domiciliary.  Games include: board games, chess, checkers, card games, and dominoes.  Modifications to the project may be made to accommodate volunteers with limited mobility.

The Veterans Domiciliary, located on the Wade Park Veterans Affairs Medical Center campus, is a state of the art residential care facility that combines rehabilitative clinical services with supportive case management services for homeless veterans. Based on the therapeutic community model, Volunteers of America of Greater Ohio, in partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and the Louis Stokes Cleveland Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VAMC), provides a range of rehabilitative care and support to foster veterans’ functional independence and develop a mutual support network with fellow veterans.  

Volunteers of America is a national, non-profit, faith-based organization dedicated to helping those in need rebuild their lives and reach their full potential. 

Things to Remember: It is advised to leave your valuables either at home or securely in your vehicle. 

Age Limits: This project is for volunteers age 16 and up. All volunteers under 18 must fill out and bring a youth waiver form signed by a parent or legal guardian.

If you would like to bring a non-oriented volunteer (friend/family member) please email the Opportunity Leader to request permission and reserve a guest spot.
