Planned Giving: Remember NHVH in your Will
If you have been a donor to the New Hampshire Veterans Home (NHVH), you know that your contributions have helped improve the Quality of Life of our residents–all of whom are veterans who served our country. They made a promise to us, and they kept their promise. Now it is our turn to give back.
NHVH currently has the capacity to serve 250 veterans. Our residents served in World War II, the Korean War, and the War in Vietnam. It won't be long before we begin to receive applications from veterans of the wars in the Middle East. This "period of war" began in 1990 and continues today. Traumatic Brain Injury and "polytrauma" (multiple injuries) are very prevalent in recent combat and we must be ready to serve the next generation of veterans and meet their unique needs.
