You can volunteer in many areas throughout the hospital -- during the day, in the evening or on the weekends. Whatever is most convenient for your schedule.

The volunteers at Good Shepherd all share one common desire - to help and to give of themselves. For many, it can simply mean being a friend, sharing a talent, lending a hand with paper work, or talking with a patient.
Good Shepherd is proud that more than 900 volunteers provided service to the hospital in 2009, representing over 60,000 hours of service work. Although we have volunteers who are in their 90s, there are also volunteers in every stage of life.

We rely on volunteers to enhance many of our programs, special events and services -- so we need your help. Please don't just think about volunteering, take the first step and do it. We invite you to become a part of our team. Besides an adult program, Good Shepherd also has a VolunTeen program for high school students who are at least 15 years of age; teen opportunities are available after school, on the weekends and during summer vacation.
