The Heart of Hastings Hospice volunteers help in the Madoc, Marmora, Stirling and Tweed areas.
Hospice offers our volunteers an opportunity to support their community
Volunteering is more than giving a few hours; it is making a difference in someone's life
Volunteers receive 30 hours of training developed by the Hospice Palliative Care Ontario
Give Back to the Community
The people we help could be your family, friends, neighbours, members of your church, former classmates and others you see and interact with often.
Help Those In Need
The clients who are referred to us really need your help. In some cases they have no one else to turn to. We cannot let them "slip through the cracks".
Learn New Skills
We offer free Palliative Care training and paid mileage.
Gain/Continue Palliative Care Experience
