DLH is committed to demonstrating our company values in everything we do. We are always striving to attain the highest level of responsible citizenship as an industry leader in the Federal health and human services market. Acting on this pledge is essential to business growth, sustainability, and maintaining the respect of our stakeholders worldwide.
As a responsible corporate citizen, we actively contribute to advancing the quality of life in the communities where we live and work through our giving program DLH Cares. We currently support active duty military; veterans and service members; underserved children, families, and their communities; and at-risk populations.
DLH created our corporate giving program DLH Cares to address company social responsibility while promoting goodwill through volunteerism within the communities we serve. Since the program's inception, we have collaborated with numerous agencies whose missions closely align with our own. Our mission is to serve active duty military; veterans and their families; underserved children, families, and their communities; and at-risk populations. Since 2010, we have successfully provided support to these groups through employee volunteerism and donations.
Some of the past and present initiatives we have supported through DLH Cares include:
- Collection for Veterans in Leavenworth, Kansas
- Vettes to Vets in Bedford, Massachusetts
- Bingo for Veterans in Dallas, Texas

National Window of Service
Each year, DLH employees across the Nation participate in our annual National Window of Service (NWS) volunteer service campaign. During this campaign, employees contribute, volunteer, and serve in a variety of ways to honor and give back to our veterans in the communities in which they work.
NWS kicks off on Patriot Day (September 11) and continues through Veterans Day (November 11). We offer this "Call to Duty" to all of our work sites and remote employees to get involved in a local initiative to help heal, house, and hire our veterans. As always, our DLH Cares team leads all NWS efforts, diligently planning activities that align with our initiatives to benefit veterans and service members; underserved children, families, and their communities; and at-risk populations.
Each year during our NWS campaigns, we provide a list of volunteer opportunities. We encourage staff to visit this page during the NWS to review and register for events that may be of interest.
2018 National Window of Service
DLH's Executive Leadership Team (ELT) thanks every employee who gave so generously of their time, donations, and efforts during 2018's NWS. Together, we once more brought aid and relief to those within our communities who needed us the most. DLH staff from all across the country joined with their local Veterans Affairs hospitals and organizations serving veterans and their families to participate in activities honoring veterans. Staff also collected and donated needed supplies, gift cards, and clothing to benefit the veterans in their community.
To finish off this year's NWS events, several members of our ELT and our senior management used their Veterans Day holiday to volunteer at the Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO) in Atlanta, Georgia. While there, we proudly served those who have served us, providing meals and even participating in a pinning ceremony for four of the VEO's veteran residents.
DLH thanks all who have served or are currently serving this country, especially those members of the DLH family who have sacrificed so much for our freedom.

Atlanta VEO Event
On Saturday November 1, 2014 the Atlanta office as a part of the NWS initiative, organized a Heroes Hot Dog Festival for the residents of Atlanta's Veterans Empowerment Organization (VEO). The Heroes Hot Dog Festival was an afternoon of food, carnival games, music, and raffle prizes. It was a huge success and will be an annual event to support our Nation's Veterans.
The VEO provides housing, treatment and recovery for addiction, healthy meals, and basic necessities, for homeless veterans as well as medical care, mental health counseling and life-skills training.
