Make a Difference in Someone’s Life

At HopeHealth, volunteers serve an essential role in caring for people facing serious illness. In partnership with our staff, volunteers support patients and their families and help with administrative tasks and fundraising events.

HopeHealth is a non-profit, mission-driven organization. If you would like to make a real and lasting difference in someone's life, we would be grateful for your compassionate gift of time.

How therapy dogs bring cheer to hospice care

Rosie is a very large and special dog—a 100-pound Leonberger—who brightens the lives of people every day at HopeHealth’s Philip Hulitar Hospice Center in Providence, RI. She has many nicknames, including Fuzzy Bear, Friendly Lion, Gentle Giant and Chocolate Moose. She also has a real job, complete with a job description, ID badge and even her own business card listing...

“Why I volunteer at HopeHealth”

Katrina Jackson, age 19, is a volunteer at Hope Hospice’s McCarthy Care Center on Cape Cod. She wanted to give back to the place that cared for her grandfather.

“It’s been a really incredible experience,” she says. “I’ve pushed myself in ways I never thought I would and met incredible people and learned some amazing things.”

Listen to Katrina’s story.

“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
