About

Join the team at Mission House, a peaceful 10-bedroom hospice house in San Mateo 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.
