For Congregations

We partner with local congregations to help them build and maintain ways
of remaining in contact with their community members who may be
experiencing healthcare or transportation difficulties. We offer flexible
partnerships, and will help you identify which of our resources may help
your community create, grow, or enhance an active group of volunteer
visitors.

We can provide your volunteer group with:

  • Training and educational materials on volunteer visiting
  • Consultation
  • Education on specific issues that may face volunteer visitors (such as: identifying and responding to spiritual distress, effective communication with adults with Alzheimers and related dementias, Storytelling as Sustaining the Self, and others as needed)
  • Opportunities to connect and learn with volunteer visitor groups in other congregations
  • Materials and guides for holiday and life-cycle programs to be held in healthcare facilities
