How We Give Care
When our hearts are filled with Krishna’s love, we often want to share that love through acts of kindness and compassion.
Compassionate Care is another form of prasadam (mercy), as is our giving of Shastra readings (ancient scriptures), kirtan (mantra music meditation), healthy prasadam (vegetarian blessed foodstuffs) according to the individual’s medical situation, the supporting of the family members’ needs.
If you are an empathetic soul, and want to care for other devotees, join one of our outreach support teams as they visit homes and hospitals in times of need. You won’t be required to administer any medication and we will train you in all the nuances of care.
Our hotline project will be for assisting devotees from afar. So if you need to reveal your mind in confidence, ask questions or share your insights, we’ll be there to ‘Care’.
Some of our Medical Advisors have made themselves available to assist and counsel devotees in need, either by phone or in person, as they’re able. Please see here, who is available at this time.

We provide complete wrap-around services offering each recipient a safe and self sufficient spiritual environment. Preventive medicine is a primary concern.
VCC Hospice Projects
Our hospice projects are in development. The supportive care provided is meant to allow each client to fully absorb the mind in transcendence, so they may be adequately prepared for that critical time of passing; guaranteeing a successful transition to the next life. Please visit our Project Pages for more information on each of them.
VCC Retirement Projects
Self sufficient Eco-Villages and spiritual environments for spiritual seekers are on the way. With our Farm & Eco-Village partners, we’ll build communities everywhere on the planet, where no one is left alone, in difficulty. Please visit our Project Pages for more information.
VCC MP3 and Tablets Program
Many senior devotees have found themselves in nursing homes and hospice facilities where they are surrounded by karmis. This can have a devastating effect on the spiritual well-being of the devotee. However, the simple gift of an MP3 player or a tablet pre-loaded with Kirtan, Hari Katha, and so forth, can benefit the spiritual well-being greatly. Click here to donate to this program.
