Valley Home Care and Hospice offers wonderful volunteer opportunities to individuals from a variety of personal and professional backgrounds.
All support groups are facilitated by board-certified art therapists who use art and other creative means to help children express their feelings.
Volunteers of Valley Home Care must be at least 14 years of age. Our Junior Volunteer program is a great way to accrue hours for college applications and religious or school obligations.
Valley Home Care also welcomes volunteers from Girl Scout and Boy Scout Troops, Classes and Organizations of Schools who assist with various events and parties. So, if you are looking for a project to gain that award, this is a great way to do it.
