How to Help

Why It’s Important to HELP

We invite you to help ensure that hospice home care, palliative care, and every aspect of patient and family support remain available to those who need them.

If you have office skills, we'd welcome your help with word processing, data entry and the like. If you're a natural organizer, you can help with one of our annual events. If you're an educator, ask us about our educational seminars and workshops. We need people with a variety of skills to serve as event chairs and on organizing committees. There's always a place to serve and be included in our community.     

For more information about volunteer opportunities, you can e-mail our Director of Community Engagement, Diane Kelley, call (831) 333-9023, or submit our volunteer form. And please, spread the word about our meaningful work.
