Would you recommend Gentiva Hospice?

by Donald G. (July 16, 2014)
I volunteered for the "Veterans visiting Veterans" opportunity. As a retired Army officer, I have set high standards for organizations such as this. I volunteered nearly two months ago and have not heard word one from this hospice. I know that Volunteer Match recommends that if a volunteer doesn't hear from the organization within a few days, the volunteer should contact the organization. I totally disagree with that. If an organization truly wants and values their volunteers, then they will contact the volunteer within three working days of the volunteer expressing an interest. For me, the failure of an organization to make that contact speaks volumes. First, the Volunteer Coordinator (VC) is failing to do his/her job. Second, the Manager is failing to properly supervise the VC. Volunteers are the heart of the hospice program and are to be greatly respected and not ignored. Third, if the Manager is failing to supervise the VC, who else is s/he failing to supervise with what impact.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
