WBZ Profiles NECHV with Series of Features for WBZ Cares

Each month, WBZ News Radio 1030 selects a nonprofit organization and shares their impact in the community in a series of stories. In November, WBZ chose to highlight the different programs and services at NECHV that help Veterans make strides toward sustainable independent living.

The series began with an overview of NECHV, our mission, how our model of care is changing along with the Veteran population and its needs, and how our ongoing renovation will allow us to continue to provide a high level of care. Subsequent episodes showcased personal finance and technology programs offered through our Veterans Training School and our human services programs, as well as told a Veteran success story. You can listen to all the episodes below.

Thank you, WBZ, for choosing NECHV for WBZ Cares and for bringing more awareness to our work, mission, and the challenges and needs of the Veterans we serve.
