  • To complete a phone screening and volunteer application.
  • To provide current professional licenses/certificates, as applicable.
  • To complete a general Volunteer Orientation, as well as any necessary training specific to your area of interest.
  • For clinical volunteers, to commit to a year of volunteering (once per month at minimum).

Our patients rely on us to maintain a standard of excellence for their care. As such, we ask that volunteers contact Volunteer Manager Debbie Skaggs to apply.
