Volunteer Services at City of Hope, Duarte Campus
Volunteer Services has an exceptional group of diverse volunteers who volunteer to gain new skills, utilize existing skills and to be of service. They offer compassionate care and service to patients, caregivers and guests and provide supplemental clerical support to staff. Volunteers range in age from 15 to 85. They work 3 to 4 hour shifts in a designated department on a weekly basis. Volunteer Services collaborates with departments throughout the medical center. 

Volunteers provide close to 80 unique services; they provide services seven days a week from 6:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m.  Prior to becoming a volunteer, all applicants attend an extensive training in the medical center’s policies and procedures and receive a medical clearance from Employee Health Services.
Some volunteers receive additional training to participate in specific Volunteer Services Programs such as Art for the Heart , a program where volunteers visit  patient rooms on the 4th,5th and 6th floors  of Helford Hospital and  provide patients/caregivers with the opportunity to personalize their rooms by selecting  new inter-changeable art pictures for their rooms. The Hope Volunteer Visitor Program provides volunteers who visit patients    and caregivers   one on one   to ease feelings of loneliness and isolation in the in-patient setting and adult day hospital.

The Student Resource Advocates Program, in collaboration with Claremont, McKenna, Pitzer and Scripps colleges, utilizes pre-med. college students to provide basic community resources, to serve as a liaison to City of Hope’s Department of Supportive Care Medicine and to assist patient’s in navigating the medical center.  Musicians on Call, a National Program, utilizes volunteer guides and musicians to offer live music at the bedside.
