Patient/Family Care Volunteers perform a range of tasks centered around providing comfort and support to patients and their loved ones throughout the Washington DC area. Currently, we are slowly getting back to some semblance of normal for those who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19. Fully vaccinated volunteers can can provide in-person support in our inpatient unit at Providence Hospital. We also have virtual opportunities to support patients and families.

We have flower deliveries that are dropped off at the patient's doorstep. friendly calls, and letter writing just to mention a few of the ways to reach out to patients.

Volunteers must complete online training, general orientation and completion of required background check, fingerprinting in order to be a fully activated volunteer.
