​​Prospective Volunteers

​​​​"Volunteers are vital members of the hospice team. They bring comfort to patients and their loved ones in a variety of ways-whether at a patient's bedside or supporting the mission through administrative services. They are the heart of hospice." 

-William E. Finn, President and CEO

Volunteers contribute to the overall well-being of our community one person, one family at a time. Volunteers help in many ways and are limited only by their imagination. Take a look at the many hats you could wear as a volunteer.

**It is required that a prospective volunteer wait 12 months after experiencing a significant loss before volunteering directly with patients.

Our volunteer, George Cooper, is both a Navy and Marine Veteran and a retired RN. He volunteers in many ways throughout our agency by providing companionship, participating in Veterans Recognition Ceremonies, assisting with TB tests at volunteer education classes, working with pediatric patients, providing transportation, doing community outreach and much more!
