Ways to Give: Volunteer

Hospice Volunteers are an essential part of the Harbor Hospice team.

Imagine how helpful it would be if someone delivered your medications right to your door; or if someone could stop and visit your loved one when you couldn’t be there.  Harbor Hospice volunteers do all that – and so much more.

All Harbor Hospice volunteers go through a comprehensive training.  During the training, they see the many ways that volunteer help is used throughout the organization.  Trained volunteers are then given the opportunity to choose how they would like to help.  Our volunteers provide countless talents, skills and helping hands.

The ‘basic’ training requires a study course on hospice related topics provided in book format, which potential volunteers may take home to study.

“It is such a pleasure to participate in this program.  I receive a personal gift for my soul each time I meet families or patients during this time of their lives.

– Sherri Dawson, Harbor Hospice Volunteer since 2011

Volunteer Opportunities

We are saddened to note that our spring and fall orientations have been canceled. It is very important that we keep our senior population, community, and staff healthy and safe. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has recommended canceling or postponing in-person events that consist of 50 people or more. Because of the changing environment surrounding the pandemic, we’re unable to confirm a rescheduled date.

Those signed up please contact our Volunteer Coordinator to inquire about our next dates.  Thank you.
