“Volunteering is service without any expectation of payment.  In that sense, it is selfless.  Selflessness is the way God works through people to demonstrate that people matter, love exists, and God cares.  That is my payment.”

– Dr. W. Graham Carlos
Hope Heathcare Services Volunteer Physician

Join our team

Thank you for your interest in volunteer at Hope Healthcare Services. A health crisis can be devastating—both emotionally and financially—especially for those with limited resources.  Hope Healthcare Services was created to reduce the physical, emotional and financial burdens for those in our community with limited access to care.

The clinic ministry relies on the kindness and sacrifice of others, like you, who feel called to lend their time, talents and gifts to reach those less fortunate.

How to become a volunteer

We ask that you attend a short volunteer orientation at the clinic. We plan to host an orientation the second Monday each month from 6:30-7:30 pm at the clinic (call to confirm). All volunteers are asked to fill out the following a volunteer application, sign a statement of faith and confidentiality and submit to a background check (we ask for a $10 donation to cover the costs associated with the background check.) Forms are available for download using the links from this page based on licensure.   If you are unable to attend an orientation, please contact the clinic to make arrangements by emailing our Executive Director John Mollaun at jpm@myhopehealth.org.

 

How often do volunteers serve and for how long?

Flexible 3-4 hour shifts are available anywhere from 9 am—9 pm, Monday—Thursday. Most volunteers choose to serve one shift per month, or for specific tasks or projects. We would love to help you find a place you can serve that fits both your passion and your schedule.

 

Do I have to be a medical or dental professional to volunteer?

No! Most of our volunteers are NOT medical and dental professionals as we need support staff to run the clinic. Everything from filing, answering phones, returning patient calls, data entry, cleaning, bringing food, etc. There are many, many ways to help out at the clinic!

 

Do you provide training?

Yes. All volunteers will be trained and/or shadow another volunteer.

Since St. Valentine is known as the patron saint of love, epileptics and beekeepers, we thought we’d touch on some interesting facts related to all three!

When we think of love, of course our first thought is about our hearts. It also turns out February is heart health month and that makes it a perfect time to think about the old ticker a little more. By reducing your exposure to smoke or secondhand smoke you can dramatically improve your hearts health.

Epilepsy on the other hand is not something that we often think of when we think of Valentine’s Day or the saint himself but, St. Valentine was actually a physician himself. Epilepsy is a type of neurological disorder that is characterized by sudden, recurrent seizures. Most epileptic seizures last from 1 to 2 minutes but some are known to last longer. It currently impacts 40 to 50 MILLION people worldwide.

As for beekeepers, Hendrick’s County has its very own beekeeper’s club! They even host informational events about bees and how to attract them. So, if bees are your thing (or even if they aren’t) it seems like Hendricks County has some sweet ways to learn about the honey and hives around the community.

We HOPE you have a seriously awesome Valentine’s Day.
