Volunteer and Change a Life… Maybe Your Own

Community Hospice volunteers are an essential part of the hospice team. Our trained volunteers provide much needed support, serving our patients and families wherever they live. We offer opportunities in helping our administrative staff, assisting with fund raising, sewing, quilting, gardening, veterans support or working in our resale shops. Whether you are interested in short-term or long-term volunteerism, there may be a valuable job waiting for you.

Our desire is to educate you about hospice, with hopes that you may see a connection between your gifts and talents and help fulfill the growing need for hospice volunteers.
