Volunteer on your own time frame.

Opportunities include office volunteers, one on one volunteering in facilities or private homes, and volunteering in a facility.

We will sign off on school reports, provide you with training and orient you to the kinds of things you might be exposed to such as medical conditions that have special needs. We try to match you with someone that might have similar interests, commonality is always good. You might find yourself being challenged to do something you have never tried before. We seek those who can provide companionship and socialization inside a nursing facility or in a private home (must be 18 or older for this opportunity).

We find that those who can speak both Spanish and English well benefit the patients as well as being able to speak with other family members, as well as communicate with staff.
