Volunteer Information

The volunteers who serve at Covenant HealthCare prove that anyone can be a hero just by giving a little bit of themselves to people in need. Volunteers help Covenant fulfill its mission to serve the individuals and the community that depend on them. Just like its staff and patients, Covenant volunteers represent all ages, cultures and backgrounds.
Volunteers provide a dimension of care and service to patients as well as empathy for families and visitors – while supporting staff and physicians in an effort to provide quality care.
Covenant is looking for individuals who want to share their time and talent and help those in need. Covenant volunteers assist in providing a variety of services that benefit patients, family members, visitors, Covenant staff, and members of the medical staff.
*Volunteers must be able to provide a minimum of 4 hours on a weekly or bi-weekly basis. A minimum commitment of 40 hours is required.
