The Havasu Community Health Foundation strives to meet the needs of our local Veterans who are at-risk. Our Veteran’s Health Awareness Program is committed to health and well-being by offering a variety of services:
Health-related Low-cost labs & screenings are available for Veterans who are unable to get to a VA clinic or Veterans with a high insurance deductible or without insurance.
Free Transportation is available for Veterans currently in the Veterans Treatment Court to safely drive them to court, counseling services, and court-required lab testing.
Our COPD Bootcamp is a support group for Veterans after they have been diagnosed with COPD. We recognized that sixty-nine percent of deployed military personnel experienced respiratory illnesses and symptoms while in service. Our COPD Bootcamp provides an opportunity for peer-to-peer support.
The Havasu Community Health Foundation provides a supportive housing program and independent living for Veterans who are at risk of becoming homeless. We are pleased to be working with the Department of Housing and Urban Development to provide affordable housing, utilities, and grocery delivery for senior Veterans who are disabled or without transportation. Our program is designed to improve the quality of life for local Veterans.

In addition, we will provide them with water and food. Upon request, we will provide our backpacks for distribution to the jail, the court, the emergency room at the hospital, and the Vet Center.
