Volunteer Opportunities: Franciscan VNS helps operate a home for those who require hospice but do not have a place to live.

Answering the Phone
Visitor reception
Ongoing community communications (thank you notes, mailings)
Landscaping & garden maintenance
Meal Preparation
Resident room care
Common area care
Holiday decoration
Activities with Residents
Spiritual listening
Providing creative outlooks, such as art classes
