Become a hero on your own terms

On your own time. In your own way. With your personality. Your ability to relate. Your own skills. Your way of solving a problem, sharing a story, helping somebody remember important moments in their lives.
You can be one of our volunteers

When you give us the precious gift of your time and interest, we give you a chance to make a real difference in someone’s life. We train you, find you the right assignment and stand behind you as you grow.

Lighthouse Hospice provides professional care with a personal touch. We accomplish this by focusing on both the patient and their family. We will treat the disease process with medical expertise while emphasizing quality living, not only physically, but also psychosocially, emotionally and spiritually. Comfort, compassion and calming presence are the gifts we bring to this service, and we are honored to walk with the patient and loved ones through this special time.

We are looking for volunteers who are certified in pet therapy! Animals have proven to provide benefits to Hospice patients, including lowering blood pressure, reducing physical pain, and increasing their comfort and quality of life. If you are in the process, or have already completed a pet therapy program, we would love to bring you on as a compassionate, pet therapy volunteer!
