The American Cancer Society Hope Lodge Network provides free, home-like accommodations for cancer patients who have to travel for treatment. There are several ways volunteers can help with daily Hope Lodge operations such as preparing meals, providing entertainment, planning special events and activities, and improving the facility and grounds. Additionally, we need volunteers at select locations to drive patients to and from treatment.
Opportunities are available during weekdays, weekends, and evenings.
Volunteer orientation training, confidentiality training, and onsite training may be required.
Volunteer drivers must take required training.
Volunteers help make Hope Lodge communities a true home away from home. Volunteers may choose from a variety of opportunities and activities that fit your skills and interests. You can volunteer for a single day or be a longer-term volunteer, and you can volunteer by yourself or with a group. You can choose to work with cancer patients and caregivers or work behind the scenes in other areas. Join us and help brighten the day of cancer patients and their caregivers!
