Become a Shanti Activities Volunteer!
Shanti Project exists to enhance the health, quality of life and well-being of people with terminal, life-threatening or disabling illnesses or conditions. Through a continuum of services, including in-home and onsite patient and care navigation, emotional and practical support and preserving the human-animal bond, Shanti strives to achieve the highest medical and quality of life outcomes for San Francisco’s most vulnerable.
The Activities Program offers currently registered clients an opportunity to enjoy some of the Bay Area's cultural events and recreational activities with a supportive group of peers. Living with life-threatening illness can be a difficult and lonely experience, and research shows that socialization and support can provide a big boost to both the spirits and the immune system.
