Volunteers are the best

Hospice of Santa Cruz County has been serving our community for over 40 years, and we are the only community-based, non-profit hospice in our area, meaning we are not a corporate hospice.

Volunteer Visitors offer support to people facing the end of life. They are understanding listeners who also make it possible for a caregiver to take a few hours of respite. We’re also looking for bilingual volunteers, massage therapists, pet companion visitors and veterans wanting to serve other military veterans.
Our Spring 2020 training will start in April in Watsonville. Volunteers LOVE our training program.
There will be a Pet Evaluation Day prior to that for interested pet visitors.
Please go to our website, hospicesantacruz.org and apply!
Or let me know you are interested through volunteer match. Thank you so much!

How can I apply?
