Grief Support Volunteer
Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care
Volunteers generally work out of our south Kansas City office 3-6 hours a week providing telephone support to those dealing with loss. They follow-up on a regular basis, provide information, comfort and reassurance as these bereaved wind through the difficult path of grief. Professionals can co-facilitate 6-week support groups or provide ongoing therapeutic visits to bereaved in their home. Commitment to following these clients through their journey for 13 months is mandatory.

Kansas City Hospice & Palliative care is a a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization.
Kansas City Hospice & Palliative Care is a nonprofit organization offering a range of services for people of all ages and at any stage of serious illness. We've been providing comfort and care to the seriously ill and their families in the greater Kansas City area since 1980.
By providing both hospice and palliative care, we are able to assist patients and their loved ones at any time following a serious diagnosis. Hospice is provided when the focus is primarily on comfort; palliative care is provided when it is too early for hospice care and the patient may be seeking treatment aimed at cure.
