Community Hospice Veterans Partnership
Community Hospice also provides resources for veterans. Community Hospice Veterans Partnership (CHVP) is a coalition comprised of individuals from Community Hospice, the Department of Veterans Affairs facilities, veterans, local navy personnel, community organizations, corporations and others working to ensure that excellent end-of-life care is available to veterans living in our community. Through the generous contributions of community supporters, CHVP initiatives include outreach to veterans service groups.
The Veterans History Project was launched as an initiative of the CHVP. The project, a partnership with the American Folklife Center at the Library of Congress, collects and archives personal recollections of U.S. wartime veterans who live in Northeast Florida to honor their service and share their stories with current and future generations. The stories will become a permanent collection of the Library of Congress. In addition, the Veterans History Project First Coast will host the oral histories on its website for researchers, students, friends and family to hear and experience. Visit the website at VHPFirstCoast.org.
For information about the CHVP call Toula Wootan, Community Development Officer, at Community Hospice at 904.407.6211.
Caregiver Coalition of Northeast Florida
In response to a growing number of family caregivers in our area and the need for a focused community effort to help them, Community Hospice created the Caregiver Coalition of Northeast Florida in 2009. The Coalition’s mission is to promote awareness and knowledge of, sensitivity to and support for family caregiving in Northeast Florida. The Coalition's vision is that all family caregivers will have knowledge of and access to resources that support them and those in their care.
The Caregiver Coalition is made up of six Northeast Florida community-based nonprofit organizations:
While each Coalition partner organization is committed to helping caregivers find the information and support they need to provide excellent care, these organizations also work together to host activities, such as the "Caring for the Caregiver" workshop and a newsletter, Caregiver Connections.
