Volunteering with Hospice of the Valley may be one of the most fulfilling things you ever do.
Hospice of the Valley needs volunteers to provide quality, compassionate care to patients and families in the east valley (Chandler, Gilbert, Mesa, Tempe) who are facing life-limiting illness. Volunteers provide breaks for caregivers and spend time with patients, listening, talking, playing cards, reading books and more. Volunteers are asked to visit patients once per week for 2-4 hours for a minumim of six months. Twenty four hours of free training is offered monthly, valley-wide, typically on four consecutive Saturdays. Please fill out a volunteer application at http://www.hov.org/volunteer-opportunities-0 to be considered for a training class. A volunteer coordinator will follow up with you upon receipt of your application.
A special teen volunteer program is also available valleywide. For more information and to apply, please visit http://www.hov.org/teen-volunteer-programs. Teen volunteers are asked to commit to one year of service.
