USDVA
The Compassionate Contact Corps is at about 80 Veterans Affairs facilities in the U.S.

The Compassionate Contact Corps, a new "social prescription" program deployed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, matches Veterans experiencing loneliness or social isolation with volunteers trained to ease such conditions. We attend a national media roundtable hosted by USDVA to learn more.

Jacqueline Froelich is an investigative reporter and news producer for "Ozarks at Large."
