Volunteering, A Lifetime of Opportunity

Volunteers are an essential part of the Iroquois Memorial Hospice team and program. Each volunteer brings special talents to the program. Our Volunteer Coordinator will schedule volunteers according to their talents and interests.

Volunteer training is scheduled throughout the year. Our Volunteer Coordinator will be happy to answer any questions you may have about our program. To download a volunteer application, click here.
