Join the team at Mission House, a peaceful 6-bedroom hospice house in Redwood City for patients and their families. As a Mission House volunteer, you will provide compassion, dignity, and comfort to people in their last weeks of life.
Volunteers sit with and care for our residents:
Sit with patients, offering companionship and comfort
Help staff with personal care and transfers
Help cook and serve meals for patients and families
... and keep the house clean, neat, and beautiful:
Run errands, help with housekeeping and laundry
Answer the phone, file, and write notes
Water and tend the gardens
We’ll train you, and you’ll be part of a supportive, caring team. Mission House volunteers work in four-hour shifts, 8am-noon or 4-8pm, seven days a week. We ask volunteers to commit to at least one shift a week, for a minimum of 8 months.

Mission Hospice & Home Care is a nonprofit organization whose professional staff and well-trained volunteers are dedicated to providing the finest quality, compassionate care to those who are terminally ill or facing a life-limiting illness, and to supporting their families through illness and bereavement.
It’s about life! Mission Hospice & Home Care helps patients live life to the fullest, offering medical, spiritual, emotional, and practical support to patients and familes throughout the end-of-life process.
We are San Mateo County's first hospice program, founded by volunteers in 1979. Since then, our staff and volunteers have cared for more than 10,000 patients and families throughout the San Mateo County area.
We are known for our personal, individualized palliative care - whether in patients’ homes, assisted living, board and care, or skilled nursing facilities. We see every day that our compassionate care gives patients and their loved ones the opportunity to cherish their time together.
This work would not be possible without volunteers, who are the heart and soul of our care. Our direct care volunteers offer important emotional and social support to our patients and their families, providing companionship, logistical assistance, and more. Our indirect care volunteers offer their time and talents in the office, assisting with mailings, special events and administrative tasks. The Mission Hospice Auxiliary is dedicated to raising funds and promoting awareness of the services provided by Mission Hospice & Home Care.
