Hello!

Would you like to gain some community service hours for school or for your resume? We are currently looking for volunteers/interns for our office. This is a good opportunity for anyone studying in the medical or social work field & who would like to become familiar with hospice. It is also a good opportunity for anyone retired looking to serve (for example, we have an opportunity on Thursdays that consists of making calls to the patients' families to check in on them).

We can usually work with your schedule, Monday - Friday, 8AM - 5PM.

Please reach out to Claudia Franco at claudia.franco@goodshepherdhospice.com or at 210-733-3939.

Thank you for your time!
