Bereavement/Condolence Phone Calls
53 people are interested
Samaritan is a not-for-profit, non-sectarian agency caring for people suffering from serious, progressive illness and grief.
Bereavement Call volunteers make approximately 10-15 calls on a monthly basis from your own home to check in with those who have recently lost a loved one on Samaritan's services and reassure them that Samaritan is still there if they need us.
Condolence Call volunteers make phone calls from our administrative office on Thursday mornings to our patients and families to offer our condolences within 2 weeks of their loss.
No computer skills required. No experience necessary!
Please note: All who have experienced the loss of a significant family member or friend must wait one year from date of loss to begin the volunteer process.
- Minimum Age: 18
- One-year commitment
- Volunteer Orientation and Training
- Ongoing: Annual Education
- Condolence Call Volunteers:
- Above requirements, plus Medical Clearance:

We ask that all volunteers bring the following qualities to their work at Samaritan: good communication and listening skills, a non-judgmental attitude, reliability, flexibility, and compassion.
Thank you for considering spending your valuable time with Samaritan and we look forward to hearing from you!
We'll work with your schedule.
