Group Opportunities

Please Note (COVID-19 Update): In order to protect the health and safety of our Veteran community and minimize risk, the New England Center and Home for Veterans (NECHV) has decided to suspend all volunteer service until further notice. Please revisit this page for continuing updates regarding any changes to the volunteer program and NECHV’s ability to reincorporate volunteers into the building. For any and all questions, please contact us at community.support@nechv.org.

NECHV welcomes corporate groups, school and alumni organizations, faith-based groups, civic organizations, and more for volunteer support.  All opportunities are offered in our downtown Boston location at 17 Court Street.

If you are interested in reserving an opportunity for your group or organization, please check out the list of opportunities and get in touch with us by using the contact information below.

Meal Service

Each year over 1,400 volunteers assist Veterans at NECHV by serving meals at the Center. Meal service is an ideal volunteer outing for companies or clubs. Volunteer teams of up to 5-7 individuals serve meals behind the line. This is a great way to support our kitchen staff and get to directly interact with Veteran residents. Many groups have regularly scheduled meal service dates each month.

Below are the times for each meal:

  • Lunch: 11:30am – 12:45pm
  • Dinner: 4:30pm – 5:45pm
  • Breakfast: 7:30am – 9:30am
  • Dinner: 4:00pm – 5:00pm

Please note that our meal service calendar books up far in-advance, so please plan ahead!

Sponsored Meals

Through this program, a breakfast, lunch or dinner meal can be underwritten, served and/or sponsored.

Many businesses, civic groups and organizations participate in the sponsored meal program and provide a special menu with a theme. The Veterans living at our 17 Court Street center enjoy the variety and great food selections offered when a meal is sponsored. It’s also a great way for families to become involved providing service to the Center and is one of our most beneficial programs. Learn more about NECHV’s Sponsored Meal Program. >>
