Pet Peace of Mind Volunteers
Assist Haven in keeping pets and owners by providing care for animials. This program is made possible by a grant from Banfield Charitable Trust. Duties could include taking the pet for a grooming visit, a veterinary visit or just taking the pet for a walk. If you love pets, this opportunity might be for you.
Haven Ambassadors (Community Outreach)
Haven Ambassadors represent Haven Hospice at community events, speaking opportunities and health fairs. They work closely with staff and other volunteers in the community to raise awareness about the programs offered through Haven. If you like engaging with the public this opportunity is for you.
Administrative Support Volunteers
Administrative Support Volunteers provide critical office support for departments and teams at Haven. They are called upon to assist in many ways including data entry, answering phones, providing a warm welcome at the front desk, preparing information and support material for marketing, assisting with inventory control, stocking and ordering various materials, duplicating and printing documents and working with other volunteers to assist as needed. Hours for Administrative Support Volunteers are flexible and can be scheduled to meet your needs.
It is the Haven Attic volunteers who make the stores a success. They spend time sorting donations, stocking the floor and making friends. But beyond that, they help people throughout the Haven Hospice Community -- patients and families, as well as people who have challenging economic circumstances and need an affordable place to shop. We are always seeking energetic, conscientious volunteers who are mindful of the Haven mission. We could not do what we do without our volunteers.
“I enjoy the camaraderie at the Attic – we are just like family. As a volunteer, I always feel appreciated, and I have a true sense of accomplishment when I help Attic customers.”
-Beanie Brooks, Haven Attic Volunteer
