Change someone’s life, including your own.

When you volunteer at Hosparus Health, you should expect nothing less than the satisfying feeling you get when you make a real difference in someone’s life. Often, the volunteer experience gives people purpose and meaning. It gives them the ability to see the world through a different set of eyes. It’s profound whether you’re attending to patients, taking care of a pet, or helping to keep someone’s landscape tidy.

Volunteer Opportunities

There are a lot of ways to volunteer and a lot of them you’ll probably enjoy, mainly because you can choose what you like to do. You can provide comfort and companionship or respite for families. You can assist at our Thrift Shoppe or serve on a fundraising committee. You can even play music or help us with admin tasks. Take a minute to view all of the ways you can support us.

Get involved.

We regularly hold training events for volunteers throughout the region. If you’re thinking about becoming a volunteer, this is a good place to start. Check out our calendar or contact our volunteer encouragement team.
