Volunteering for the Oregon Veterans' Home - Lebanon

Members of veteran service organizations or community groups such as schools or church associations are always welcome and will be needed at the OVHL. You could say it is vital to the well-being of our veteran residents. Volunteer activities are diverse and include everything from a friendly visit with a veteran or group of veterans, to assisting resident groups of personal interest to using special talents. Activities like walking the grounds or assisting a resident in writing a letter will be very comforting and encouraging. We also have practical ways for serving our veteran residents such as providing transportation, or helping raise funds for a project the Home is working on. Consider how you or your group can help today!

Our honored guests at the OVHL love to have visitors. Whether it’s to sit with them during dinner, go on a walk on the campus, or play an intense game of checkers in the solarium or Canteen, there are many ways our visitors help support that feeling of gratitude we promote with our veteran residents. You may know someone in the Home, or just want to share some time with one of our honored guests, you will be richly rewarded during the visit.

The visiting hours at the Home are every day of the week from 9 am to 5 pm. Please check in at the front desk.
