Veterans Administration Hospital
Veterans Administration Hospital is a major rehabilitation
center for veterans who have sacrificed for our country.
Chess Corps believes in giving back to these men and
women of our armed services through its program in chess
recreation therapy. Chess Corps particularly focuses
on work in the spinal cord injury unit of the hospital.
Chess Corps professionals work with patients, nursing,
occupational therapy, and recreational therapy staff
to provide a unique rehabilitative experience for the
recovering veterans. The West Roxbury facility is equipped
with two magnificent recreation rooms, and Chess Corps
teachers provide one–on-one bedside instruction
If you are veteran interested in playing chess during your visits to Boston or you wish to establish a chess teaching program in your local community through the interactive chess teaching/playing web site (under construction) please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
