Partner with us for a higher purpose.

A source of comfort, encouragement and support, Gentle Shepherd volunteers find their own lives enriched through the gift of service and the honor of spending time with someone at the end of life.
Joining our volunteer family gives you an opportunity to serve others in ways that are meaningful, rewarding and greatly appreciated.

“It’s such a privilege and blessing to spend time with patients and give their caregivers a much needed break. I also enjoy visiting with them in facilities, making them smile, reminiscing, listening to their favorite musice or praying with them.”

– Debbie Szuch, volunteer  (pictured below)

Gentle Shepherd Hospice volunteers provide many wonderful services including:

  • Serving as a member of our “Gentle Shepherds” visiting team, which provides companionship to patients who live in residential facilities.
  • Visiting with patients in their homes, perhaps reading or praying with them.
  • Assisting GSH administrative and marketing staff with community events and sending cards, thank you notes or letters.
