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, playing musical instruments, or sitting with patients and/or their families in support. 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 8am and 5pm. Groups can also adopt one of our facilities to create seasonal craft items to help brighten patients’ days. Volunteers should have access to transportation and will need to pass a background check and drug screen.

Our mission is to give and maintain dignity, power, self-worth and prosperity for seniors and their families, at the same time bettering the quality of life through education, advocacy, and other services. This will increase the opportunity for independence and a longer healthier life.
We would like to provide an opportunity to play as integral a role in the life of this community as seniors would have in their native countries. We provide English classes, basic computer classes, self-esteem workshops, cultural events, exercise, community visits, transportation, a monthly food pantry, and more.
We welcome both long-term and one-time volunteers in groups of 1-15 people,
and appreciate any skill that students are willing to share with our seniors.
Spanish, Napali speaking useful but not necessary.
