VA Northern Indiana Health Care System depends on the goodwill of our benefactors and volunteers who wish to give something back to America's heroes.
Volunteers provide many important functions throughout both Medical Centers and help make our patients' stay more enjoyable. Volunteers can perform a number of services, and a volunteer's talents are closely matched with one of our many assignments.
To volunteer, call or visit the Voluntary and Community Resources Department. For the Marion office calls (765) 677-3114 and for the Fort Wayne office, call (260) 460-1435. We will be happy to receive your application or discuss how you can help us in our mission to provide comfort and care to America's veterans.
