Support Groups

Our grief support groups, led by trained volunteers, offer a place for people in grief to come together and share the common bond of experience. You are invited to talk about grief and share its problems with others who may be facing similar challenges and difficulties. It can be invaluable to know you are not alone, and our groups are meant to offer comfort and hope on the road to healing. We always strive to help you feel comfortable and to create an atmosphere of trust, confidentiality, and mutual support.

We offer groups throughout the year and as the need arises. Please contact us at if you think you might like to participate.


We are always looking for new volunteers. The role of the volunteer on the hospice caregiving team is central to bringing comfort and companionship to hospice families. 

Are you a good listener? Do you like to offer meaningful help to others? Then you have the essential qualities of a hospice volunteer.

We hold volunteer trainings in the spring and the fall. Our trainings are 40 hours, and  consist of 8 weekly sessions and one all-day class. The cost is $65, which covers a background check. Scholarships are available.

Our volunteers are people of all ages and from all walks of life. No medical background is not necessary. We also seek those who can help in the office and with fundraising events.

If you would like to volunteer with us, please reach out.
