amcp

  • Adventist Medical Center Portland (AMCP) is looking for volunteers who can help us fulfill our mission “to be the human expression of the healing ministry of Jesus Christ”. Our volunteers play an important role in delivering mission-focused care to our patients and visitors. With a commitment of as little as 4 hours a week you can make a difference in the lives of the people in our community. To learn more, visit AdventistHealth.org/NW/Volunteer or call 503-two51-6114

hOSPICE

  • Did you know that hospice is also about living life? Make a difference. Adventist Hospice patients need your gift of a little time as a Volunteer! Good with tools, play an instrument, like to garden, or play cards? Does it feed you to make people feel better? Help me match you with a waiting need. Caregivers need breaks to “recharge” their energies to tend to their loved one. Hospice patients with no family, especially, are greatly moved by your presence. You will be treated as an Employee of Adventist Hospice and held with the honor that you deserve. If you feel called, please contact the Adventist Health Hospice Volunteer Coordinator at (503) two51-6192 to learn more about the application process!
