St. Joseph Hospice volunteers help enrich the lives of others by giving their time. We offer a Hospice Volunteer Training Program to those who wish to support our hospice patients. This dedicated volunteer group understands the challenges patients and their families face, and offers support through hope, courage and emotional support.

Hospice volunteers assist with a variety of projects and bring a wide range of skills to the St. Joseph Hospice team. Hospice volunteers often provide the support and companionship that patients and their families need to embrace the hope of tomorrow.
