We have a lot of work to do in caring for the individuals and families we support. We rely on volunteers to help us in many ways. Approximately 200 volunteers give of their time and skills to support our work.
Every week our volunteers contribute over 210 hours of their time to our organization which amounts to over 10,000 hours a year. Truly Appreciated! Truly Amazing!
Our in home volunteers go in to the homes of the people we serve to provide companionship, respite and support. In the last few years our volunteers have made a meaningful difference to over 150 families doing over 765 visits and contributing 1870 hours.
During our spa days our specially trained volunteers provide a variety of complementary therapies. This year alone our volunteers provided 866 treatments to the people we support.
We provide the orientation and the training for the different volunteer opportunities. Any of our volunteers that work directly with our families are required to take our 30 hour training.
We are SO VERY grateful to all of our volunteers for the continued generosity and commitment to our families, our work and Heart House Hospice.
