About

JSSA HOSPICE VOLUNTEERS NEEDED Do you want to help people during their most challenging days? Do you want to make a real difference in the life of a patient or family by volunteering your time and compassion? JSSA (Jewish Social Service Agency), a non-sectarian community agency, is seeking volunteers over the age of 18 to help enhance the quality of life of individuals and families facing life-threatening or terminal illness. JSSA offers specialized training for prospective volunteers for its Hospice and Transitions programs. Following the training, volunteers are asked to commit to a minimum of 2 hours a week visiting patients in the Hospice or Transitions programs. In addition, we have found it beneficial for individuals to wait one year following the death of a loved one before becoming a volunteer with JSSA Hospice and Transitions. The next 20-hour training course is scheduled for Sunday, January 22 and Monday, January 23, at JSSA's Montrose office at 6123 Montrose Road, Rockville. Applications and interviews will be required for those interested in the volunteer training. No walk-ins accepted. For more information and to sign up for the course, please contact Carrie Myatt, Volunteer Coordinator, at 301-816-2611 or cmyatt@jssa.org, no later than 5 days prior to the start of the course.
