About

Avow is seeking dedicated and reliable volunteers to make a difference in the way our community experiences serious illness and loss.

Patient Support Volunteers

When you volunteer with our hospice care program you become a member of the patients interdisciplinary team working with our clinical care staff to help ease the journey for patients and their families. Some of the ways you can share your time and talents include:

  • Making visits to patients to offer companionship

  • Giving families a needed break by providing respite

  • Sitting vigil with patients during their final hours

  • Helping us recognize and honor our veteran patients

  • Bringing your trained pet to visit patients (Dogs must be AKC Canine Good Citizen certified)

  • Singing at patient’s bedside with the women’s "Serenity Singers" acapella group

  • Assisting our bereavement team

  • Assisting with Children’s Services (camps)

  • Offering professional support (Florida license in social worker or mental health, music therapists, a member of the clergy, licensed hairdressers, etc.)

General Volunteer Opportunities

Avow also needs assistance in areas unrelated to patient care. Some of the ways you can help include:

  • Treasures Resale Shop with proceeds benefitting Avow’s hospice care. (Volunteers help with inventory, displays, sales and more.)

  • Special events (assist with fundraising and memorial events throughout the year)

  • Office support services

  • Photography, videography
