The Detroit VA Healthcare 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 the Medical Center 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.
