Waiting Period After A Death

We have other opportunities for you to engage in during the one-year period, so please do not hesitate to apply to volunteer. We are sorry for your loss and offer free bereavement services through our Center for Loss and Transition to support you during this difficult time.

Our volunteers are trained and specially selected for duty in the areas of direct patient care, indirect patient and family support, pastoral care, and bereavement care. They also participate in advocacy, community outreach, and fundraising.
