Ascend Hospice is looking for creative and compassionate volunteers to help members of our team in the process of creating keepsake hand castings for our terminal patients and their families. We serve individuals living within 60 miles of our office location, and any help would be welcome, so that we can provide these families an item that will sustain after their loved ones have passed.

For information on training and support services available, please contact our office at : 816-584-8111 and ask to speak with a Volunteer Coordinator.
