Volunteer with us!
It may be one of the most fulfilling things you ever do.
Volunteers visit and read with patients, run errands and offer emotional support. Our biggest need is for volunteers to provide companionship for patients and give breaks to family caregivers. Visits are made in patient's homes, assisted living facilities and our inpatient units, including Ryan House.
Volunteers also can work at our White Dove Thrift Shoppe, with four store locations. Stitch a beach towel into a bath poncho. Sing a song or play an instrument. Take your pet on a therapy visit to bring smiles and comfort. Arrange and deliver bouquets of donated flowers to patients. Answer phones, greet people and manage paperwork in our offices. Assist with special events. Or give community talks to educate groups and companies about our many programs and no-cost community services.
Spanish speakers are needed for patient companionship and to provide grief support for children.
Please select from one of four main categories of applications:
- Adult Volunteer Application (all applicants who are 18 years of age or older and/or no longer in high school)
- Teen Volunteer Application (all applicants still in high school and under 18 years of age)
- Teens In Nursing Application (all applicants still in high school and under 18 years of age)
- New Song Center (applicants wishing to specifically volunteer for this program only)
Training requirements vary based on your chosen role. Those who wish to support patients and caregivers complete an extended orientation—a total of 16 hours of training over two days. Orientation classes are held monthly. Applications must be submitted in advance. Call (602) 636-6336 or email us for more information.
Whatever you do, know you are making a difference in the lives of our patients, families and staff. We treasure volunteers as valuable members of our hospice teams.
