HCP volunteers started the organization in 1979 and they continue to strengthen everything we do.

Our volunteers have an immeasurable impact on our patients, families and community. Working with patients, bereaved children or administrative work aimed at outreach to our community, volunteers make things happen for HCP! What we can measure tells us this; in 2018, HCP recorded 282 active volunteers who donated 10,708 hours to HCP’s mission to provide the highest quality of emotional, physical and spiritual support with compassion and respect. Their time and talents resulted in $186,011 in cost savings to the organization. To become an HCP volunteer, please complete the application linked below.

“Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.” - Leo Buscaglia
