Who volunteers at Isaiah House?

Our volunteers are a diverse group of people who see the value and worth of every person. All are compassionate and feel the need to serve.

 Not all volunteers provide bedside care. Some tend the garden, clean our home, or share their talents in other ways. All are appreciated.

What is it like volunteering at Isaiah House?

The emphasis at Isaiah House is on living and quality of life for our residents. To play a small part in their final journey is an incredibly uplifting experience for our volunteers. We find great satisfaction in knowing we have made someone smile or brought a family member to the bedside who may not have made it otherwise.

How will I be trained?

We provide an orientation and training for all of our volunteer caregivers. New volunteers are always paired with an experienced caregiver when beginning at Isaiah House.
