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.
Have YOU ever wanted to bring comfort, joy, and support to the vulnerable? If your answer is YES then YOU are INVITED to become a part of a CARING AND COMPASSIONATE TEAM of hospice volunteers!
Hospice provides physical, emotional and spiritual support for terminally ill patients and their families. As little as a few hours a week can bring so much support to these patients and their families.
New hospice volunteers participate in free training that is available at your convenience. On average, hospice volunteers give 4-8 hours per month.
Direct Care Volunteers- Includes services such as phone calls, in-home visits, running errands for patients, and activities like reading, praying, playing music, etc.
Bereavement Support Volunteers- There are volunteers, ages 16 and older, who provide emotional support to families who have lost their loved one with hospice through phone calls, mail-outs (cards & letters) and home visits.
Special Projects Volunteers- These are volunteers of any age who are part of a group or work independently to provide support to the office staff or to provide comfort items for patients such as blankets, attending health fairs, and assisting at nursing facilities.
