Volunteer with VNA Programs

To Volunteer in Hospice

Hospice volunteers are adults of all ages and from all walks of life in our community who wish to support those who are living with a terminal illness. They are part of the VNA's dedicated Hospice team, joining together with professional staff to offer comprehensive care to those in need. Hospice volunteer trainings are offered throughout the year in eleven-week sessions, usually in the spring and fall.
