Do You want an opportunity to feel REALLY good about yourself?
A commitment of a small amount of time each week can make that happen.

We are looking for caring people to visit with our patients for companionship/caregiver relief.
We are a member of the We honor Veterans Program and looking for veterans to visit veterans.
If you have a pet (therapy pet trained) have special talents in music, reiki, healing touch, art, etc. and would like to share those talents we would love to have you on our team.
We care for patients in Mercer, Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem Counties.
We keep the volunteers visiting patients in close proximity to where the volunteer lives.
We could also use some help in our Burlington office with administrative duties.
If you are interested or would like more information, please contact Donna Comeforo, Volunteer Coordinator
