You Can Make a Difference

Volunteering your time is a wonderful way to benefit the important work of Community VNA. We have volunteer roles for those who would like direct contact with hospice patients and families, as well as options for those wishing to help in other ways, such as with clerical assistance or special event support or helping at our Adult Day Health Centers.

Love and kindness are never wasted. They always make a difference.
