We will arrange to meet so we can explore how your interests fit with our Coast Hospice needs.

The Cost is $100 and includes a one-year Coast Hospice membership ($20 value). If this poses a difficulty, please talk to us–we do not want those who want to volunteer with Hospice to be deterred by finances.
