Dear prospective volunteers:
You are invited to share in the soulful work of hospice. Learn about the ancient Celtic tradition and wisdom of Anam Cara -- soul friend. Spend 2 hours a week as a companion volunteer supporting a patient and family in this most intimate time of life -- play music, sing songs, listen to stories, read poetry or prayer, hold a hand in sacred silence. It is about living in the grace of each moment. We have many patients and families in need of your companionship and compassionate presence.

Our home office and the volunteer training is held in Tigard.
Your patient/family assignments will be closest to where you live in Hillsboro, Cornelius, Aloha and all Washington County neighborhoods.
Our next volunteer training is scheduled for October 1st, 2nd, & 8th for approximately 21 hours of training.
We follow all CMS/CDC/State guidelines on safety, infection control, and vaccinations for covid 19.
