Become a force for good
Our lives are not measured by what we get, but by what we give. If you have a natural gift for empathy and want to make a difference, we can help you be a force for good in the lives of those most in need.
How you serve is up to you
Here are just some of the things our volunteers are doing that make a real difference in the lives of our patients and their families.
Hold a hand, share a story
Listen, read, or sing
Play a game, bake or garden
Provide administrative support
Find your superpower
Every person has a gift. Our volunteer coordinators will help you find that special something that makes your care truly special, and then match your talents with opportunities in your area.
“When I realized that a lot of people die alone, it broke my heart. As a hospice volunteer, I have the opportunity to put smiles on faces just by helping to put a puzzle together, watch a TV show, or just share stories. The reward is the smiles on their faces, the bonds that we form, and knowledge that we gain, and I wouldn’t trade that.”— Nadja P.
No medical training? No problem.
To become a volunteer, all you need is a compassionate heart. Our volunteer training will teach you everything you need to know to be a companion for someone during their end-of-life journey. You’ll learn valuable skills in grief counseling, spiritual and emotional support, and end-of-life care.
Honor a veteran
There are some things only a soldier understands. If you’re a veteran looking for a way to give back, we offer veteran-to-veteran volunteer opportunities that enable you to support a fellow soldier through perhaps the most difficult time in their lives.
