Volunteer and Community

Hospice of the Western Reserve has been a member of the Northern Ohio Community for almost 40 years. We are your neighbors, friends, caregivers and family members. With more than 1,000 paid staff and 3,000 volunteers, our dedicated team members live, play, shop, worship and work in every corner of our service area.

Getting Started 

There are many ways we reach out and interact with the community and we are grateful that the community supports our mission so generously with talent, time and treasure. In these videos, our volunteers share how they make an impact - and how our patients touch their lives.

Families and retailers donate new and gently used furnishings, antiques and décor to our volunteer-run resale operations. Our quarterly Warehouse Sales, HMC Life’s Treasures Thrift Shop and seasonal Christmas Shop in Medina are great places for bargain hunters who also want to support hospice patients and families with their purchases.

Corporate volunteer opportunities bring large groups of volunteers to our headquarters, hospice houses and care centers. These extraordinarily energetic individuals can do a month’s worth of work in one day’s time.
And our devoted hospice volunteers are ordinary people of all ages, from teenagers to seniors, with an extraordinary love and a common bond of concern for others.

They contribute to the overall well-being of our community one person, one family at a time. Volunteers help in countless ways and are limited only by their imagination.

Volunteering at Hospice of the Western Reserve can be a life-changing experience. From helping with patients and their caregivers to assisting at our Warehouse Sales to a corporation providing a day of service, volunteering at Hospice of the Western Reserve is one of the most rewarding things you'll ever do
