We Honor Veterans

JSSA Hospice is a We Honor Veterans Level Two Partner. With this distinction, JSSA is placed in a select group of organizations recognized for their commitment and ability to provide comprehensive hospice and palliative care to veterans, when and where they need it.


I'm comforted by knowing that thanks to JSSA's hospice support, the few short months we had together at the end were spent focused on living, not dying.
