HopeHealth announces new volunteer program and online platform
HopeHealth Volunteers is a new volunteer program which allows service-minded community members to explore ways to give back, develop skills, form new friendships, and improve their mental and overall health. The program is led by Cindy Averitt, manager of volunteer programs at HopeHealth. Averitt came to HopeHealth after a 30-year career with the Florence Family YMCA, where she worked directly with volunteers for a multitude of special events.
In an effort to reach more potential participants, HopeHealth has posted its volunteer opportunities, special events, and outreach activities online, increasing the ways in which individuals and groups can get involved. This mobile-friendly and web-based system is called “Get Connected.” HopeHealth’s new platform does more than just allow the community to give back by responding to volunteer opportunities; it also gives opportunities to build lasting relationships.
Volunteer opportunities listed online include assisting guests as greeters and guides, helping with events and outreach opportunities, and providing social support and comfort. Potential volunteers can go to hope-health.org/volunteer to explore these opportunities and more.
On the importance of HopeHealth Volunteers, Averitt said, “HopeHealth is present in communities where people need medical services, and we are working hard to grow this program to help more people live better, healthier lives.”
