The global pandemic has changed our volunteer program and impacted the lives of patients and families significantly. We are in need of volunteers who can observe social distancing guidelines while supporting patients and families by:

  • Assisting with supply assembly and organization
  • Delivering supplies (blankets, warm weather supplies, groceries, activity books, and holistic care kits)
  • Making check-in calls and/or mailing cards or letters
  • Making socially distant outdoor visits, when weather permits

Volunteers receive training and will have ongoing guidance from a volunteer manager.

We will work with your schedule and you can choose to serve in your neighborhood, or anywhere in Louisville and the surrounding counties we serve.

The first step to becoming a volunteer is completing the volunteer application.
