Volunteers are needed to be Patient Companions. You will receive 12 hours of training (mixture of on-line and one group session) on the history and philosophy of hospice as well as how to be of most assistance to patients and their families as they face terminal illness. Volunteer needs include: reading aloud, playing games, making crafts, playing musical instruments, or sitting with patients and/or their families in support. Additional opportunities could include writing life stories, making scrapbooks, videos, keepsakes, mementos, etc. for families to keep. We are also looking for volunteers interested in companioning with family members after their loved ones have died. We offer flexible schedules averaging 1 hr/wk with daytime, evening, and weekend opportunities but ask that volunteers make a minimum one-year commitment to our organization. Office help is also needed to answer phones, file, help put together mailings, among other administrative tasks. We ask that volunteers devote at least one hour a week between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Groups can also adopt one of our facilities to create seasonal craft items or projects to help brighten patients’ days. Volunteers should have access to transportation and will need to pass a background check and drug screen.
We are seeking volunteers to assist with clients of all ages. With 50+ programs and 15 locations, our volunteer needs change daily. Volunteer opportunities are available with Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault, Solomon Girls Center, Senior Center, Community Education, Youth Links, and substance abuse treatment programs. There is always a need for childcare, office help, and donation sorting. We would love to have individuals or groups participating once or on a continual basis.
We have several different volunteer positions that may fit your goals and schedule. We invite individuals or teams (2 people) to volunteer within our programs.
