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 care or organizational support.

Hospice of Southern Maine offers many volunteer opportunities that include Direct Care, Specialized Support, and Special Event/Intermittent tasks.

Additional Information

For those who are interested in opportunities as a Direct Care or Specialized Support Volunteer, you must 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/Intermittent Assignment 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
