Thank you for your interest in volunteering at Hospital for Special Care. We strive to match the skills and interests of each new volunteer with an appropriate volunteer position.

Time Commitment

Please consider carefully the amount of time you are able to give. The minimum commitment for adult volunteers is 50 hours over a 6 month time frame. The minimum commitment for teens is 40 hours also over a 6 month time frame. This amounts to coming in once a week for two hours. Volunteers are welcome to go beyond. Be a part of our mission to rebuild lives!
