Volunteers at Christian Health make a difference in the lives of patients, residents, clients, consumers, and staff every day. Each year, more than 300 adults and teenagers aged 13-17 collectively provide nearly 15,000 hours of volunteer service to Christian Health. Their responsibilities are varied and extensive.

Our goal is to make your volunteer experience a valuable one, while also benefiting Christian Health residents and patients. Each of us is given gifts and talents to use for the common good.
