Make a Difference in Someone’s Life
HopeHealth's volunteers serve an essential role in caring for people facing serious illness. In partnership with our staff, volunteers support patients and their families through companionship, alternative support services, administrative and community support and more throughout Massachusetts and Rhode Island. We also partner with Pet Peace of Mind to care for patient's pets when they are no longer able.
HopeHealth is a not-for-profit, mission-driven organization. If you want to make a real and lasting difference in someone's life, we would be grateful for your compassionate gift of time.
“Our volunteers provide a sense of calm and reassurance that tells the family, even without words, that they don’t need to be afraid, they are not alone. Blessed is the work of our volunteers!”
—Susannah Currie, M.Div., board-certified chaplain for HopeHealth
