Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
Thank you for considering volunteering with Alacare!
If you enjoy speaking with large groups and leading activities, consider becoming a Community Impact Volunteer with Alacare. As a goodwill ambassador, you can assist with programs that raise community awareness of our Hospice and Home Health Services. You will have the opportunity to connect with all age groups and assist in a variety of ways.
Public speaking and activity events may include health fairs, working with church and civic organizations/clubs, senior centers, schools and colleges, and Long Term Care Facilities
New volunteers are mentored by the Volunteer Coordinator until they feel comfortable and confident in providing assistance independently. Volunteers are never expected to assist with the personal care of patients and are assigned based on their interests and what tasks they feel they can easily accomplish.
Our volunteers set their own schedules and we work with you to make the most of your talents and time! If you have a heart for volunteering, please contact Alacare to find out more about this and other volunteer opportunities available.
