Volunteers needed for national 'We Honor Veterans' program
The Honoring Veterans Volunteer Program - Pathways offers many ways that community members can honor the service of our veterans at the end of life. We work with community veterans who serve in two ways through this important program:
- Veteran Companionship Volunteer - Training is provided to all volunteers who work directly with veteran patients and families on the unique needs of our military service men and women. Care is given to assign veteran volunteers to serve veteran patients as this relationship can create a special bond.
- Recognition Team - Pathways wants to ensure that our veterans get the recognition that they deserve for their service to our country. Towards this goal, the Recognition Team will distribute certificates to all current veteran patients.
Opportunities exist in both Larimer and Weld counties.

Pathways, located in Fort Collins and Greeley, is a local nonprofit organization providing symptom management and support for serious long-term illness, expert medical and hospice care for individuals navigating the last months of life, and grief counseling and programs for those mourning the loss of a loved one. From our beginnings in 1978, when a group of nurses came together in Loveland to voluntarily care for a friend in the final months of her life, we’ve been assisting Northern Colorado residents with hospice care and grief counseling regardless of financial circumstance. We serve individuals living in Larimer County, western Weld County, and the Highway 85 and I-25 corridors including the towns of Fort Collins, Loveland, Greeley, and Windsor.
Volunteers are truly at the heart of Pathways care, providing support to patients, families and Pathways staff. Today, more than 250 volunteers work in almost every department of Pathways.
We offer a variety of ways to become involved in clinical and non-clinical roles. Clinical roles include those in which volunteers provide support to patients and families; non-clinical roles are "behind-the-scenes" in nature and are vital to the delivery of our organization’s mission.
Whatever your skills, interests and motivations, our community is strengthened by your volunteer involvement. THANK YOU!
