“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

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 firstname.lastname@example.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.
