Mission Statement

As expressions of God’s healing love, witnessed through the ministry of Jesus, we are steadfast in serving all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

Description

At Providence, where faith leads our way, we invite you to come exactly as you are, including where you come from and what you believe. To bring your whole self - mind, body and spirit -and know we’ll always walk alongside you, in all the moments of your life.

Volunteers with Providence Hospice of Seattle (PHOS) help provide emotional and practical support to those who are facing a terminal illness. We serve patients and families throughout King county, wherever they may call home (private residence, nursing facility, adult family home, etc.) Volunteers can serve in their own community. Volunteers may help by providing companionship for patients, respite for caregivers, transportation to appointments, assistance with errands such as grocery shopping, and much more. Complementary Therapists also provide massage therapy, music therapy, animal-assisted interactions, meditation, and other modalities to provide comfort to patients. Volunteers also provide support to our bereaved family members through one-on-one listening support, co-facilitating a children, teens or adult grief group, or as a volunteer at Camp Erin (an overnight, weekend camp for children and teens who have lost a loved one). In addition, volunteers help support our mission through administrative work in our offices.
