Volunteer Opportunities at The Connecticut Hospice
If you or someone you know is looking for an opportunity to serve others in your community, we would like to hear from you. Our patients and families are in need of your care and support. As a CONNECTICUT HOSPICE VOLUNTEER, you can fill your hours (weekdays/evenings or weekends) by assisting in an administrative capacity or offering direct care as a friendly visitor, provide pastoral or bereavement care, help in the arts or meet transportation needs.
For more information please call Joan Cullen, Director of Volunteer Services at 203-315-7510. You can also email email@example.com.
