Join our family of Volunteers!

As a volunteer, you will be part of a team fulfilling an important mission: to provide compassion, care and comfort for those coping with a life-limiting illness, and support to their families and loved ones. 

Our volunteers experience profound emotional and spiritual rewards that come from deeply meaningful work, whether they contribute direct service or organizational support.

Hospice of Southern Maine offers many volunteer opportunities that include Direct Care, Complimentary Services, and Special Event/Episodic tasks.

Additional Information

For those who are interested in opportunities as a Direct Service Volunteer, it is recommended you wait one year to volunteer if you have had a significant loss or death in your life. In the year you are waiting you may choose to volunteer as a Special Event/Episodic Volunteer.

For more information, please review the Hospice Volunteer document below.

“It was probably one of the most honest and non-judgmental relationships without expectations that I have ever been privileged to have. And it’s made me a much better person.” —Lora Larrivee
