Save to Favorites

Veterans

We invite you to make a difference in the life of a fellow military veteran.

You were there for each other when you served so far away from home and family, you can make that same difference today. You can be a listening ear for a veteran who is facing another tough battle, a life-limiting illness.

Make a difference by being a friend to talk to, someone to confide in. Make a difference by helping us honor our veterans in our specialized ceremonies. Make a difference by never letting any veteran die alone.

Our volunteers are trained extensively to work with end of life patients, and we can't wait to work with you!
Our opportunities are flexible and can work with your availability. We ask that volunteers receive a tb and drug test, and get a background check in order to work with our patients.

We know that volunteers who are drawn to hospice are truly exceptional people. We can't wait to meet you!
