Become a Hospice Volunteer!
Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice philosophy. Hospice volunteers are there to hold a hand, listen, read, write a letter, run errands and or even help out in our office. Volunteers are there to step in when a family member needs a break, and are there for the family and friends after their loved ones have passed away. No matter what your skills are, talents or motivation, we have a rewarding opportunity for you to help. While the subject of death and dying can be understandably overwhelming, death is essential to life. Help us provide a 'circle of hope’ for individuals who are entering their final stages of their journeys. Your services are deeply appreciated, and always welcome.
