Volunteers are vital members of the Georgia Mountains Hospice Team, who help families handle illness, loss and grief. In fact, many times those who have experienced grief and the loss of a loved one become some of the most effective volunteers. Volunteering can truly make a difference in someone’s life as well as offer great rewards for the volunteer.
Training orientation is offered on the first Tuesday of every other month. Just bring a caring heart and willingness to serve.
