Partner with us for a higher purpose.

A source of comfort, compassion, encouragement and inspiration, Gentle Shepherd volunteers find their own lives enriched through the gift of service and the privilege of being there at the end of life. Many of our volunteers have also experienced hospice or the death of a close loved one and can relate to what you are going through. Joining our volunteer family will give you an opportunity to serve in ways that are valuable, meaningful and rewarding.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word… or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.”

– Leo Buscaglia, American Author

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.

If you are interested in sharing your gifts and time with our patients and their families during a season of great need, please give us a call or email us using the form below!
