As a volunteer for The Connecticut Hospice, you can choose the best role and time that works for you, from weekdays or weekends, to mornings or evenings.
Our volunteer program provides orientation and training for each volunteer who gifts us with their time, talents and expertise.
Volunteers receive ongoing support from our staff and experienced volunteers.
While we ask for a minimum 4 hour weekly commitment; we are flexible to meet your schedule. We can work with you or your organization for special one-time volunteer projects such as fund-raising or a holiday event.
Volunteers interact with patients and family members of all ages – infants, children, young adults and the elderly
Opportunities to make a difference as a volunteer continually arise.
The Connecticut Hospice volunteers are a diverse and talented group. They include working professionals, homemakers, retirees, and students. Connecticut Hospice works with local colleges to coordinate volunteerism with various community action programs. In addition to junior and senior high school and college levels, even grade school children “volunteer” for special projects like sending holiday cards and singing to patients and families.
Over 400 volunteers work alongside The Connecticut Hospice staff members in our Branford in-patient facility, and in homes across Connecticut.
