Recruiting Organization: The Doula Program to Accompany and Comfort

UNIQUE VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITY

Volunteer Training begins Winter 2021

www.doulaprogram.org

Join the men and women (our Doula Volunteers) who visit individuals facing the end of life alone without friends or family.

The Doula Program to Accompany and Comfort's mission is to minimize the isolation and loneliness experienced by individuals with advanced illness. Our Doula Volunteers get to know these individuals beyond their illness, visiting them weekly as illness progresses until the person dies.

We are the only nonprofit organization of its kind specializing in training, carefully matching and supervising Doula Volunteers who visit individuals each week for an hour (at their home, nursing home or hospital).

Our volunteers find their lives as enriched as the lives of those they visit.

Time/Assignment Commitment: Due to Covid-19 all visits will be conducted over the phone once a week. We hope to resume in-person visits when it is safe to do so. You set your own schedule. We ask for at least one year commitment after you are assigned to visit.

Training Schedule: Training begins Wednesday evenings in January (6:30-8:30 PM over 7 weeks).

Location: 55 Exchange Place (we are planning to train in-person)

How to Apply: Contactlmassry@doulaprogram.org
