Wildfires are devastating communities across California, causing more than 300,000 people to evacuate their homes and threatening many more. The Camp Fire in Northern California -- one of three blazing across the state -- is the most destructive in state history. We want to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you find access to shelter. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know the most effective ways to contribute.
The Denver Hospice, founded in 1978, is the region's leading, largest and most trusted nonprofit provider of life-enhancing hospice and palliative care. That means we offer more expertise, more resources and a more complete continuum of compassionate care to patients facing life-limiting illnesses and end-of-life transition. That means our patients and their families get more from life. Our skilled teams are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and care for patients wherever they reside - in their own homes, skilled-care facilities, hospitals or at our own Inpatient Care Center at Lowry. Headquartered in metro Denver, we support patients and families throughout nine Colorado counties - from Boulder to Castle Rock and from Golden to Bennett.
Volunteers are important members of our circle of care and we truly value and support our volunteers! We offer volunteer opportunities in both clinical (working directly with patients and families) and non-clinical (administrative support) roles. We require volunteers to be at least 18 years old and able to provide their own transportation. We expect a commitment of at least 1 year, volunteering 2-3 times per month. We prohibit volunteers from promoting products or services to our patients and families and we are unable to support community service hours.
Please contact our Volunteer Engagement Department at 303-228-5610 or email@example.com to apply. Application, interview and training required for clinical and office support volunteers.
