Hospice Volunteers serve with Passion and Purpose. We are searching for volunteers, in all programs, who are willing to help add quality of life to end of life. Volunteers are happiness arriving at the door! Social Distancing and appropriate PPE is required for all volunteer activities.

Volunteers can choose from programs including: Companions (Non-Medical Friendly Visiting)
Music Companions (live or recorded music for entertainment), Together We Serve (teams of 2), Love On Leashes Pet Team or We Honor Veterans.
Volunteers living in Cook County and South/Southwestern counties are especially needed.

No experience is necessary. Training and Support is provided. While some visits are temporarily restricted due to the pandemic, this is the perfect opportunity to train so that when visits fully open, you are ready!
Volunteer close to home, work or school at hours convenient to you. We serve patients in 16 counties of the greater Chicago area.

If you have a compassionate heart and a willingness to learn, we want to talk to you! Contact us today!
