Shulkin announced approval of several DAV recommendations brought forth by the VA Voluntary Service National Advisory Committee to expedite and streamline the process Ladies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952 onboarding volunteers. SinceLadies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952 number of volunteers and volunteer hours in the VA Voluntary Service Program has steadily decreased, a Ladies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952 the committee felt was due to Ladies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952 sometimes lengthy procedures for accepting new volunteers.
Recommendations include streamlining and standardizing the onboarding process; using external technology solutions for interviews; increasing the availability of credentialing equipment; and permitting an individuals primary care physician to complete physicals or use a community partner of the VA, such as, Walgreens to complete certain exams.
Varying practices between different VA medical centers and outsourcing tasks to multiple VA departments have proven to be hurdles to efficiency, meaning some individuals could be approved in two weeks while others may take up to four months to be fully approved and badged. This has been a widely reported and long-standing issue, said VA Voluntary Service Director Sabrina Clark, the committees deputy chairperson.
Any change that results in more expedient processing of community citizens becoming volunteers is a win-win. Changing a process takes time, but I am excited that there is a desire and a strategic direction in place for this improvement. Although there is not an exact time frame for these changes to be implemented, they will be a part of a phased rollout plan during the upcoming year.
Our goal and recommendation was to standardize and streamline a process across all VA Voluntary Service offices to ensure 80 percent of volunteers werefully credentialed within 30 days of the volunteer making contact with a veteran service organization or the VA, said DAV National Voluntary Services Director JohnKleindienst, who serves on the committee.
Made up of roughly 50 member organizations, the committee brought forth a number of recommendations and changes to Ladies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952 make the goal areality, such as Ladies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952 on improving technological capabilities to interview volunteers remotely, performing in-house fingerprinting and printing badges on site.
Getting these relatively simple items addressed Ladies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952 a long way to simplifying the process, which means more volunteers and more help for veterans and their families, Kleindienst said.

Changes to improve volunteer onboarding The time-consuming process of onboarding volunteers forthe DAVTransportation Network and at VA medical facilities has beena pain-point for local DAV leaders Lady looking casual sex TX Pampa 79065 service coordinators for years.
This year, DAV is proud to announce a new tool to help further infuse excitement into the organizations volunteer efforts: This platform makes it easy for individuals to give back by crowdsourcing Sex dating in Lake milton opportunities through a searchable online database.
Anyone in the United States can sign up and volunteer for our nations heroes, and veterans and caregivers who have a need for volunteers can also sign up and create job opportunities.
This new site is a game-changer in the veteran community, because it links veterans from across the country with volunteers of all ages, regardless of their connection to the veteran community, said Barry Jesinoski, executive director of DAV National Headquarters. We frequently are asked by veterans for assistance that doesnt fall into our traditional service programs. Were also asked by volunteers how they can get involved and help. Here, were leveraging technology to crowdsource the challenges, great and small, that veterans face.
Volunteer opportunities are based on location. Once a volunteer inputs their ZIP code into the search bar, a map will show all the volunteer opportunities available in that area.
To protect privacy, the Ladies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952 on the map will never link to a veterans or caregivers exact address. Instead, it will pinpoint opportunities based on the proximity of prospective volunteers. Participating volunteers are recognized for their contributions. When they volunteer to help veterans, they accumulate ratings toward trusted volunteer status so they can assist those with unique needs. Since February, DAV National Headquarters and itsdepartments and chapters around the country have begun populating the site with volunteers and volunteer opportunities.
We need a groundswell of participation from our members and volunteers to help drive this Ladies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952, said Jesinoski.
You know th e needs in your communities better than anyone, so Volunteer for Veterans really places the power in Ladies looking nsa CA Petaluma 94952 hands to engage local volunteers who want to get involved.

Last year, DAV launched the Forward Marchcampaign that, throughout the month of March, challenged those who have received help from DAV or benefited from a veterans sacrifice to say thank you by giving one hour of their time in volunteer service to a veteran in their community.
Forward March centers on using volunteers interests, abilities and talents to best serve their communities.

Among many Petalum designed to help military members, veterans and their families deal with the challenges they face after illness or injury is the Warrior PATHH Progressive and Alternative Training for Healing Heroes. Warrior PATHH is the nations first nonclinical program designed to cultivate and facilitate growth among those struggling with post-traumatic stress disorder.
McIntosh said it was the intimacy of the smallgroupapproach that made such an impact. There were only six of us, so when it came time to share or to do an exercise, we were never split up, said McIntosh. We were able to really address our experiences, both from the military and our lives before, and discover how small things may have made ahuge impact.
McIntosh, who suffers from traumatic brain injury and PTSD, has been putting on a brave Peatluma for a long time seeming fine on the outside but suffering emotionally. Until now, she believed her situation was normal.
I had condemned myself to a life of darkness, fighting depression and the feeling of constantly tryingto lift myself out of it, said McIntosh.

If we can give women veterans the opportunity to experience the Lades and healing that comes with this type of program, we should do it.
