Be a part of something special
Discover volunteer opportunities and learn how you can make an impact. From becoming a hospice volunteer, to being involved in one of our events, or completing your clinical observation; the possibilities are endless.
WTRC welcomes and encourages students to complete their clinical rotations at our San Angelo or Abilene facilities. The student experience is unique here because of the abundance of opportunities provided by the fact that multiple disciplines and areas of expertise are all “under one roof.” We are proud to offer free housing on a first-come, first-served basis.
The spirit of a hospice volunteer is born from a genuine desire to serve others during the end-of-life journey.
The value of a hospice volunteer can not be overstated. The relationship between a volunteer and a patient/caregiver provides a feeling of normality. Volunteers often connect with patients/caregivers on a deep, personal level, which provides the hospice care team with valuable insights concerning the overall impact of the level of comfort and care that is provided.
Volunteers are required to complete a comprehensive training course. The course is designed to help you understand the philosophy of hospice, caring for the terminally ill, grief and loss, as well as understanding the needs of the family.
We offer a scholarship program for students who desire to work for WTRC upon graduation. This scholarship includes a monthly stipend that can be used on personal or school expenses and an early commitment bonus. Fill out the contact form for more information.
We welcome volunteers to share their time and talent. Our volunteers are critical for events, hospice care, and so much more.
I became a volunteer with HOBC after I experienced the loss of my husband who received hospice services. I was able to see the impact that was made in my family and in the lives of others. I knew I wanted to give back.
I am a proud volunteer of WTRC. I want to be an example for my children because we are only as good as we leave behind.
I saw first hand how essential volunteers are. They lend support free of charge, and many non-profit organizations wouldn't be able to fulfill their mission without volunteers.
When we think about hospice services, one thing we don't think about as often is the impact on the children. Building Bridges provides special program for children through the grieving process. I loved my experience volunteering for this remarkable service.
