Become A Volunteer

Is it right for you?

If you are a caring person who likes to help others, we need you. Volunteers are the heart of Northern Illinois Hospice. In fact, we started as a volunteer organization until day-to-day business made it necessary to hire staff.

Now, decades later, it is still the generous commitment of trained volunteers that allows us to help our patients live their remaining days in the peace, comfort and dignity of their chosen surroundings.
