Volunteers are an integral part of our agency, filling roles that may include direct contact with patients to providing clerical and fundraising support for the organization. Our volunteers are community-minded people who believe in the mission and philosophy of hospice and have a desire to serve.
Volunteers play a very important role by enhancing the quality of life for patients and their families by providing companionship, a listening ear and practical assistance. They may also read to them or offer emotional or spiritual support. Volunteers may help caregivers run errands, do light housekeeping or yard work, or sit with patients to give caregivers a break. CHP Hospice volunteers receive at least 15 hours of certification training before working with patients.
Behind the ScenesIf you are more comfortable doing things behind the scenes, opportunities to serve may include: office work (copying, filing, folding, etc.), answering phones, greeting people, helping with fundraising events, preparing mailings, participating in community events, making crafts, bake sales, etc.
We would love to talk to you about how your interests, skills and talents can match with our volunteer opportunities. Contact your local CHP office to learn more.
